"Involved" may be an overstatement, although I was present and mostly
conscious in a relatively small mind, before and after Georgia's LoCo
approval. :)

Everyone interested in Ubuntu and helping guide it's future should feel
encouraged to register with Canonical's launchpad at
https://login.launchpad.net/+login - You can gain access to wiki options
this way and subscribe to changes for our state's team wiki page -
http://wiki.ubuntu.com/AlabamaTeam - After creating a subscription, you
will be notified when information is added (News about our LoCo, news
about Ubuntu, local/regional/national events involving Ubuntu, etc) or
removed (Information archival, and so on). As team activity grows, the
expectations are that more frequent wiki updates will occur, so it would
be encouraged to get involved now and find out what you can bring, or
bring what you already know possible, to the group and to Ubuntu.

Check ... Let's get some ideas out of interested minds and onto this
week's "Meeting Topics/Agenda" [1] for discussion at the upcoming meeting
on Thursday, 9/25 @ 9:30PM Central Time.

Same here. Let's move forward by addressing any existing and oustanding
ideas; bringing new ideas into view; and support to the solid future
Ubuntu has in technology's course, something we and other humans chose to
use, but were not forced to use.
