This issue of the Arizona Team Newsletter is again being written by Jacob.
We are all glad to have Jacob back. There were 2 new members at the last
meeting and we were glad to welcome them the Ubuntu-Arizona Team. Justin aka
W9fyi lives in Phoenix and is new to the Ubuntu experience. We have learned
some new things trying to help Justin get up and running. Justin is blind
and must use Orca, a speech program that actually talks to him on his
computer, and I for you am amazed at how quick he has caught on. He is
interested in helping the team out where ever he can. One idea Justin has is
to write some tutorials on the accessibility programs he is using to help
aide others who might need it in the future. Marty aka Martyd215 was the
other new attendee. Marty says he has been using computers since he could
read or before, and that he has be using Ubuntu for about a year now and
really likes it. Marty has been hanging out in our channel quite a bit of
late, and I know he is going to be a valued member of the team.
Don't forget these links for helping us get going on our quest for Ubuntu

There are a lot of you folks out there who are signed up as team members,
but who aren't participating at present. We encourage you to come visit us
in our team IRC Channel #ubuntu-arizona and get to know us. We have a great
group that hangs out there and would enjoy the chance to get to know you,
and help with any Ubuntu related problems you are having!
Summary of last meeting July 15, 2007
The meeting started out with the usual greetings and the introduction of the
two new members that are listed above, and we are very pleased to have them
involved with this group!
John reported that the average amount of words a day in this channel was
Once again I (Jacob) is back writing the newsletter after taking last week
off for a family death. Everything is okay and I am glad to be back in the
swing of things. Thank you for all the support from this group!
Br24 is making great strides with the education page to help new users get
familiar with Ubuntu. If anyone wants to help br24 with his education page
please contact him and offer up any help. The site can be found here:

Bluecat9 offered a new solution to the C4K project to bring money to the
group to use as the group sees fit. Bluecat9 wants to change the C4K page
into a donation page where companies can donate cash and other items to the
group and we can use the funds to buy computers to help support the C4K
project. The idea passed with flying colors and Bluecat9 is getting started
on that. I (Jacob2440) was voted to take care of the tax and accounting side
of getting this ball rolling. I will be getting a Tax Id Number (EIN) for
the group. I will be making the group a non-profit and all banking will be
done online. I will come out with more details at the next meeting and if
anyone has an issue with this, or wants more information please contact me
John setup a meeting for the marketing for Wednesday night, and he will be
able to fill in any questions people have.
This meeting was very productive and if anyone needs the details of the
meeting, you can find a transcript on the team's wiki page. Thank you again
for keeping me and my family in your thoughts.
