I teach ubuntu on Tuesday nights in Boston. It's a fun night, sometimes
it's busy and sometimes is quiet. 7pm to 9pm.

Have an expert in the room is a great way to learn and gain confidence
in how to operate your computer. I highly recommend other ubuntu masters
get invoked with teaching and showing ubuntu off to our new users in

Alternately if there are enough of you guys in the West that would
benefit from my having session out there. It can be organised with your
help and we can do something about making sure everyone gets the chance
to learn and get good at using ubuntu.

No problem, if anyone needs help or would like to run events or projects
in Massachusetts. Let us know. A lot of us are just waiting for the
chance. Next year from January we will be starting up our meetings and
planning events. Your welcome to come too (but it's in Cambridge/MIT so
a bit far perhaps)

Best Regards, Martin Owens
