Ubuntu hour will go ahead as usual this Friday, August the 3rd, 2012 at Misty Mountain Coffee shop. Bob, who also holds Ubuntu hours (the third week of the month) had kindly added the event to the Ubuntu Loco events calendar, but listed the location as Little Bean Cafe.

I had some discussion with different people from past Ubuntu hours and many feel they want to stick with Misty Mountain. While the front of Misty Mountain isn’t very accessible, the back entrance only has 1 step to go up. People seem to really like having the big TV and the ability to shut out noise (by closing the door) at Misty Mountain.

We don’t have an official schedule for Ubuntu hour, but one of the topics on my list is Software Freedom Day for 2012. Currently Paul and I have 1 other volunteer. SFD is just over a month away. With so few volunteers we are thinking we may have to cancel the event this year. If you’re interested in helping out please come out or contact myself or Paul before Monday.

The Ubuntu Hour starts at 7pm, tomorrow (Friday).

  1. Sorry about the wrong venue, Charles. I thought we’d be trying Little Bean from a conversation on Twitter.

    I’ve also put this blog post as the “Announcement” link on the LoCo Event.

    • No this is my bad Bob. I didn’t update after the conversation. I also looked at Matter of Taste. Phong has offered for us to use the space. I like MM because it’s so close to work, because of the nice screen, and because of the bubble tea. I know Bean has it too. A couple of people mentioned that Bean tends to be loud (spotty) and we don’t have the screen.

      I don’t like that MM isn’t accessible from the front (the back has 1 stair). Wonder if this could be a further discussion on the ubuntu-ca IRC channel?

  2. Hi Charles: I’ve put a new event in the LoCo calendar for another Ubuntu Hour Kitchener. Let me know if anything needs updating.
