jdeslippleia2 set up a page for our organization here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Picnix2002:07
iheartubuntu2is there a picnix in SoCal?02:08
jdeslipI guess we have a booth (a couple tables)02:08
aadityaHi all. I'm just dropping by, barely got back to Cali and should have an answer for everything by tomorrow. That said, I'm present.02:08
pleia2aaditya: any idea when registration will open? and when we'll know the placement of the tables?02:08
jdeslipIt would be good to have some CDs to give away.  Can anyone burn ~50?02:08
pleia2oh ok, thanks :)02:08
pleia2we have pressed ones still, so we can use at least 25 for the picnic (and the rest for solano)02:09
jdeslipFor everyone in the Bay Area, please add your name to the wiki if you are planning to attend02:09
jdeslippleia2: ok great02:09
jdeslipI have a street fair style tent I could bring if MarkDude is not bringing his02:10
MarkDudeUm not sure about any of it yet02:11
* MarkDude knows nothing02:11
jdeslipOK, well, we can figure out the tent closer to the event.02:12
jdeslipAnything else we need?02:12
pleia2I'll flesh out the list of what we need this week, probably need some ties to put the banner up on the tent02:12
jdeslipMarkDude: let me know if you are going to make it and bring the tent by email etc..02:12
grantbowwe could use some help at the registration desk at the beginning of the picnic.02:13
pleia2and I'll send the list to the mailing list so we make sure we have everything (some cheap orange tablecloths would be nice)02:13
MarkDudeOk, well it may be used by Fedora and stuff02:13
jdeslippleia2: ok, sounds good02:13
grantbowsounds good02:14
jdeslipAny other picnix related stuff to chat about?02:14
iheartubuntu2is there one in so cal?02:14
epsNot this year, not that I'm aware of.02:14
pleia2I think we're good, woo picnic in 2 weeks :)02:15
iheartubuntu2how would be go about getting one going? contacting various distro trams?02:15
grantbowiheartubuntu2: create a day in so cal to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Linux!02:15
iheartubuntu2i'll have to think about this! could be fun02:16
jyoWhat's up with the picnic RSVP?02:16
pleia2jyo: aaditya said he'd have info tomorrow02:16
pleia2so hopefully soon :)02:16
grantbowyeah, says "Expect the RSVP database open in late Spring or early Summer." now02:16
epsDidn't say which year02:17
jdeslipOK, moving on to topic number 2 - Game night.02:17
iheartubuntu2ok -02:17
iheartubuntu2An Ubuntu game night can be a great way to spend time together as an entire California team.02:18
iheartubuntu2This is something that could expand nationwide or even worldwide eventuall02:18
iheartubuntu2Coming up with the right game or rotating games will be the challenge.02:18
iheartubuntu2Ive done a little research on games.02:18
jdeslipiheartubuntu: you mean like online games right?02:18
grantbowfun idea - open source lan party kind of thing?02:18
iheartubuntu2First person shooters seem to be the most common multi player games02:18
iheartubuntu2online games where we can all join in02:19
jdeslipTo be honest there are a lot of nice games for Ubuntu02:19
iheartubuntu2i dont think minecraft is free, but it might be an idea02:19
jdeslipthat I have been meaning to try but had no reason02:19
jdeslipNexuiz etc..02:19
aadityaThe site is slightly out of date. Expect updates tomorrow.02:19
iheartubuntu2frozen bubble handles multiplayer, but i dont know how many02:19
iheartubuntu2freeciv, pokerth, and even london law all do multiplayer to some extent02:20
jdeslipiheartubuntu2: Why don't you try to organize something, send invitations out to the mailing list (and wherever else appropriate) and see who shows up for the first night02:20
iheartubuntu2there may be chrome games like WTG Golf that can handle all of us at once02:20
pleia2maybe create https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/GameNights to list some of the games02:21
iheartubuntu2right now i was hoping for game ideas02:21
grantbowrunning under wine is cheating I guess :-)02:21
jdeslipthe Linux Action Show just had a show about Linux games :)02:21
iheartubuntu2regnum online (now called realms online in USA) is another game than can handle the entire СA team02:22
jdeslipThere were a couple civilization type games shown off (can't remember names though)02:22
jdesliphttp://www.playdeb.net/ has a lot of nice games listed02:22
grantbowactually running games under wine for this event might help increase participation and provide teachable moments for Ubuntu02:22
iheartubuntu2would anyone have any multiplayer game ideas?02:23
iheartubuntu2good idea grantbow02:23
iheartubuntu2should this be a california thing or expand bigger?02:23
jdeslipI don't have any specific ones except Nexuiz, OpenArena, FreeCiv and Wesnoth02:23
pleia2maybe start with california?02:24
pleia2see how it goes02:24
iheartubuntu2pleia2 thats what i was thinking02:24
grantbowI would do a strong showing locally before expanding to prove that it's worth it02:24
jdeslipThe new supertux kart looks pretty flashy02:24
iheartubuntu2which direction should i take this? focus on more questions? more game choices?02:25
iheartubuntu2some games can handle 4 players, some can handle 50002:25
jdeslipiheartubuntu2: I'd just take charge of it if I were you.  Make whatever choices you would like and see how it goes. It is easy to get feedback after a first trial02:25
iheartubuntu2so set it up and run it02:26
jdeslipIn my opinion, the hard part is just getting started :)02:26
iheartubuntu2i was also thinking a game night right after our team meetings here since we have a number of people already together02:26
jdeslipnot a bad idea02:27
iheartubuntu2ok, thats it for me unless someone has something to add02:27
MarkDudeSuper Nerd Night SF has a great live way they do this02:27
iheartubuntu2i'll move this forward02:27
iheartubuntu2how so markdude02:27
jdeslipiheartubuntu2: great! thanks for this02:27
MarkDudethey have all sorts of options for people02:28
jdeslipBrowsing playdeb led me to this RISK type game: http://www.playdeb.net/software/TripleA - I like me some RISK02:29
pleia2MarkDude: that's easy to do for an in-person event with a lot of people, this proposal is virtual so we'd need some coordination and possibly servers running to play games, which means we can't offer a ton of options (plus I don't think we'll have a ton of people :))02:29
iheartubuntu2video cards can limit the amount of players too02:30
jdeslipOK - does anyone have anything to add before we end the meeting?02:31
epstotals 1502:33
jdeslip-------------------- Meeting Ends -----------------------02:33
grantbowThanks for hosting jdeslip02:33
