Laura Cowen, Tony Whitmore, Alan Pope, and Mark Johnson are back in Studio A (sorry, no streaming video from this broadband connection) for episode 7 of season 4 of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK LoCo Team!
- We talk about installing Ubuntu for a friend’s Dad, doing a project management course, being old(!) at 23, and presenting about usability to computing students.
- Laura also pimped an online survey she’s created for her PhD research. If you live in the UK and would like to take part in the survey (and/or can pass the link on to colleagues, family, and friends to get the widest sample of respondents possible), she would be very grateful for your help. The survey is at: http://is.gd/UKenergysurvey.
- In the news:-
- We mention upcoming events:-
- Summer – Ubuntu UK plan to visit the Sci-fi exhibition at the British Library, probably followed by a Geeknic. Check out the Ubuntu UK mailing list for more information.
- 13th – 14th August 2011 – OggCamp11 – The Maltings, Farnham, UK – We have a sponsor (Chris Procter on behalf of lug.org.uk) and everything!
- We interview Philipp Heckel about his new project Syncany. He needs developers; see the project website for his contact details.
- We chat with Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon.
- We listen to the competition entries (people and computers pronouncing the name of the next Ubuntu release) and decide who wins the Natty Narwhal goodies (including a Narwhal signed by Ubuntu Release Manager Kate Stewart) swiped by Popey at the release party.
- We have a Bit About Ubuntu:-
- ..and a bit that’s Not About Ubuntu:-
- Finally we have your feedback, including an answer for Tony’s Dad: try Joiku for tethering a Nokia phone to an Ubuntu laptop.
