Ciemon Dunville, Alan Pope, Tony Whitmore, Dave Walker and Producer Laura Cowen in a new episode of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK Local Community Support Team.
In this the first episode of the second season we return with a slightly changed format. We’re trying to reduce our workload by recording more ‘live’ and doing less editing and post processing. We’re hoping this won’t reduce the quality that you’ve come to know and love in our little podcast.
In addition we’ve opened channels of communication by taking comments via twitter and identi.ca whilst we record the show. We think this will improve the immediacy of the show and help people to get involved. Of course we welcome your feedback on these changes. Apologies in advance for grouping together all twitter and identica feedback as “twitter”. The relavent parties have been fired.
In this weeks show:-
- A catch up with what the presenters have been doing whilst the podcast has been taking a break
- Ciemon has been phoning himself with Asterisk (with the help of a free book) and rejecting mice with Crunchbang Linux
- Dave has been stretching his leadership muscle with the Ubuntu UK LoCo Team
- Alan has booted himself over a network with PXE and the Net install image and has played with Blender as a video editor
- Tony has been playing with Easy Peasy on his new Acer Aspire One, and recently helped judge the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase
- Tony and Laura interview Scott James-Remnant from Canonical about some of his projects
- A discussion about what’s coming up in Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04)
