New York users: Free Culture Salon

Posted by Greg on July 8, 2008

I thought I would pass this along for those of you interested in the Free Culture side of things*.

My coworker, Fred Beneson, has just announced the CC Salon in NYC for July.  A CC Salon is to Free Culture what a LUG Meeting is to Free Software.  At this salon he has lined up some great looking presentations from Wikia Search and Livable Streets Network along with a performance by comedian Max Silvestri (of Gabe + Max’s Internet Thing).

If you are interested it will be taking place on Wednesday July 23rd at The Open Planning Project ( 349 W. 12th St. first floor).

There will also be some free (as in beer) beer sponsored by the Brooklyn Brewery.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see other Freedom minded folks and have a good time!

You can RSVP on the Facebook event or emailing Fred at (simply make that an email address).

*Full disclosure: I am employed by Creative Commons this summer

Bug Hug Day – July 3rd

Posted by Greg on July 1, 2008

I just wanted to remind everyone that this Thursday is another Ubuntu Hug Day!

I know what you are thinking: “But Greg, isn’t that the day after your birthday and the day before your nation celebrates its independence?”

Why yes, you are right, what better way to celebrate getting older and wiser along with Freedom than by helping out with a great Open Source project! Here are the details:

Area of Focus: Xorg bugs

Goal: Get all the bugs on this list into a Triaged state.  There are lists of “New” bugs (untouched) and “Confirmed” bugs (need a bit more diagnostics before being Triaged).

But wait, there are more reasons to participate!  Coming up is the Global Bug Jam and you want to be all prepared for that right?  This is the perfect time to get some questions answers and general advice from the community of triaging experts.

If you have been triaging bugs for a while, an Ubuntu Hug Day is a perfect time to sing up for the Bug Control team.  And as always, be sure to get yourself on the stats page for 5-a-day!
