=== Summary of the June 21, 2009 meeting ===

johnc4510 called the meeting to order at 9:01 PM

Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Meetings/09June21

johnc4510 then started with an announcement:

 * Freenode no longer accepts Mibbit.  Freenode has experienced some
abuse due to mibbit.  So, mibbit has been cut off and has it's own web
portal:  webchat.freenode.net .

johnc4510 then started a discussion about the Tucson install fest. 
soldats suggested OSCR, the U of A Computer Resource Center as a
location and can be contacted throught the oscr.arizona.edu website. 
Another possibility was at Pima Community College.  A third possibility
was Bookman's on East Speedway.  Next, a date for the install fest was
discussed.  July 27 and August 1 were both suggested.  August 1 is on a
Saturday, and seemed the most reasonable.  johnc4510 also hinted broadly
that anyone was welcome to attend the Tucson install fest.  It wasn't
restricted to only Tucson residents.

johnc4510 then asked xHans for any PLUG announcements:

 * PLUG west side this Thursday at 19:00. "Unetbootin and Asus EEE
Install howto" will be one topic.  It will be at a different location
this week and the next two months, but we haven't yet decided where. 
http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/354 .  Keep an eye on that URL for
breaking news.  Depending on space, I will likely also do a presentation.

 * There's an Installfest Saturday.  http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/122
.  That's co-sponsored by the LoCo, so y'all should show up.

 * Planning for ABLEconf 2009 kicked off this week. 
http://www.ABLEconf.com/participate . We will be having weekly IRC
meetings the hour before the LoCo meetings.  We also have a discuss
mailing list for the main planning communication.
