After a little discussion in the IRC channel, I suggest one of the two
following descriptions. The first attempts to describe Ubuntu California
more than Ubuntu, while still having room to talk about what we'll be
doing at OSCON. The second describes Ubuntu and Ubuntu California, but
does not describe our OSCON plans (which seems more consistent with the
other descriptions on the OSCON site).
Ubuntu California is a local community team of Californian Ubuntu users
who advocate free software and the spreading of Ubuntu through as many
avenues as possible. Members of the team will demonstrate the various
flavors of Ubuntu and will be on hand to answer questions about it.
Ubuntu California is a local community team that supports and advocates
for Ubuntu: a GNU/Linux distribution "for human beings" that focuses on
ease of use. Team members interact with Linux user groups, present at
conferences and events, and come together to discuss anything and
everything related to Ubuntu.
Feel free to edit boldly and reply here or in the channel, as always :)

I vote for the second, since many more people will recognize the name
"Ubuntu" (it's awful popular these days :) than just the logo by itself.
As for "the url you would like your logo to be linked to", I assume
everyone agrees with https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam
