The main issue here seems to be one of people identifying with
Ubuntu-UK yet feeling alienated from a UK branded, creative, event. In
saying this I emphasise that this does not mean I believe that they
either were, or were not, alienated.

I have no problem with this, I did not follow its discussion anyway. I
am also ok if a bunch of people who want to, and who can, actually get
to do it and do not wait for greater authority, other comments, whatever.
However, there might have been advantage in a pre publication 'press
release' say, when more than half way through the process. If
resources were available, a few Q&A and comments. This would have
enabled some others to identify with the activity rather than later
being taken unawares. Pre-pub press release or similar with the
intention to inform is useful in a dispersed group to assist in
cohesion. Such a press release does not invite creative feeback or
review, just informs of actions and impending events. This can
strengthen the self confidence of the wider team.
Surprises are almost always of negative effect and if they can avoided
all the better. If the surprise is intentional, (hopefully not), then
the motives need review I suggest.
I look forward to more podcasts. FWIW the only podcast I (previously)
listened to is the linux action show.
