That's right. Quite a few people signed up to help as well, which bodes

Actually no, we didn't send out information about the project until now. The 
reason for this was to enable us to concentrate on getting episode one out, 
with a decent (in my opinion) website, hosting, bandwidth and so on. 

In the past the discussions seemed to get bogged down or stalled entirely. 
We created episode one to enable us to prove that we could do it, prove that 
the technology worked and build a framework in which the whole Ubuntu UK 
community can contribute.

There was of course nothing stopping anyone creating a podcast in the past. 
But they didn't. We did. That doesn't mean nobody else can take part. Far 
from it. In the podcast actually asked for contributions, but I guess you 
haven't had time to listen to the podcast yet, so wouldn't know that.

It was entirely deliberate to keep everyone "out of the loop" and I take 
full responsibility for that decision, and stand by it fully.

I hope you can appreciate why and I would like to invite anyone who would 
like to take part, to contact us and let us know! I look forward to hearing 
from you!
