[Ubuntu-US-CA] Demand high for Ubuntu gatherings in Silicon Valley

First BTW: James McClain, Christian Einfeldt, Lyz and I did the Ubuntu Hour
SF yesterday and had a great ole time, discussing Partimus (which I learned
means "We share"), wart hogs, Ghana, LoCo leadership and other Ubuntu
matters, going to The Grove to get a bite to eat afterwards. And Monday
Christian says there is a Partimus activity, taking computers from SF over
to the East Bay to a new school site.
Now my main topic: how hungry folks seem to be for Ubuntu gatherings in
Silicon Valley. I always suspected there was a LOT of pent-up demand, and
now I see strong indication that is the case. I'm doing a social change
project with James McClain for a class we have at De Anza college where we
are going to promote Ubuntu Hours in Santa Clara Valley / County (i.e.
Silicon Valley). So I payed $15 and started a Meetup group to try to reach
beyond the usual suspects. And a few days later there are already 20
people who have joined up!!! No joke! And they are spontaneously
suggesting meeting times and places! Yeah!
