The Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG) had their Westside meeting today. I attended it like I have been for the last couple of meetings. Several members had recently gone to SCALE in California, so most of the meeting was devoted to talking about what they did there. They said that it was a great learning experience, and a great way to meet many people that use free software. Hans even gave a presentation at SCALE which he went through with us. They are planning on going back next year and invite anyone that is interested to go along with them.
Anything Ubuntu related
On Feb. 19th, 2009, our own Kenny McHenry (kennymc0) went before the Americas Regional Membership Board, and after a short question and answer session, was granted Ubuntu Membership for his outstanding contributions to the Arizona LoCo Team and the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter. We had a good turnout of team members at the Board meeting to show their support of Kenny and his bid for membership. It was great to see all the support for a fellow team member. With Kenny's acceptance, that brings the number of Arizona Team members with Ubuntu Membership to 3, and we have others who are working toward qualifying. We congratulate Kenny on his membership, and thank him for all of his outstanding work on behalf of Ubuntu, the Arizona Team, and the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter. w00t!!
