akgranerAwesome day 2 at Grace Hopper - gave out lots of information about ubuntu women! :-)  Many women who stopped by the booth were already using Ubuntu and wanted to know how to get involved with contribution - I sent them here :-)  Happy dance!!!06:50
hypatiaakgraner: awesome!06:50
akgranerThere were also a lot of students who had heard of Open Source - but not sure what it was - and it was just as exciting to talk to them and demo Ubuntu for them06:52

akgranerThen I left the Grace Hopper event to go to a meeting/expo for the National Association of Women Business Owners no one there knew anything about ubuntu  - so of course I had to tell them about it along with the business I was there with :-)07:02

hypatiaoptimum: we don't have any financial activities09:11
elkyoptimum, we have 0 monies.09:11
optimumshouldn't canonical provide funding?09:12
elkythere, this channel is logged and that report is now public. enjoy.09:12
hypatiaelky: lol09:12
hypatiathis just in: UW has 0 monies.09:12
hypatiaoptimum: canonical does fund some things such as the webhosting we use, and funding for some UW members to participate in UDS09:14
AlanBelloptimum: canonical provides support, some of which costs canonicl money09:14
hypatiabut it does this for all ubuntu projects09:14
elkyUW isn't a legal entity in any part of the universe. We have no reporting obligations.09:15
AlanBellwhy do you ask?09:15
optimumI would suggest that Canonical has a duty and responsibility to provide funding to Ubuntu-Women.09:15
rwwI maded you a cookie, but I eated it so we wouldn't have to put it on the tax forms.09:15
elkyoptimum, canonical does support us when we ask.09:16
hypatiarww: sadface09:16
svakshaoptimum: feel free to suggest that on our mailing-list for wider audience response09:17
optimumsvaksha: I will consider it.09:17
hypatiai'm not sure what we'd do with money09:18
hypatiaaside from send more folks to UDS09:18
rwwhazard pay for the channel ops09:18
MarkDuderww lol09:18
hypatiaon nights like tonight, that seems reasonable09:19
* hypatia sends thank-you cards09:19
elkyoptimum, was there some reason you wanted financial history for UW?09:22
optimumelky: I was wondering about who funds UW, how much funding they provide, and how the money is spent.  I am also a bit curious as to how the meetings are run, whether UW uses Robert's Rules, and so forth.09:25
valorieour past meetings are all online09:25
elkyoptimum, i've donated money and material objects to UW, and I really don't care for my financial activity to be public.09:25
hypatiaugh rob's rules09:25
hypatiado not want.09:25
hypatiaoptimum: you're welcome to attend our meetings, the schedule is public09:26
hypatiain the topic, actually09:26
valorieI've never seen a case where we needed something so hidebound and heavy09:26
AlanBelloptimum: I can tell you all about meeting processes if you like, how much time do you have?09:29
AlanBellout of interest does gentoo fund it's women's group?09:29
AlanBelloptimum: on the subject of meetings I would be interested in a discusion of the concept of quorum in an amorphous community group09:31
optimumI have a project I need to do, unfortunately. but I would be interested in having those discussions some other time.  I am not aware of a Gentoo women's group.  Gentoo is primarily a nonprofit production.09:34
AlanBellbit of a shame it doesn't have one, seeing as they cost zero moneies :)09:34
AlanBellthe "Ubuntu community" is basically not financially driven, Canonical is a very separate entity09:35
