Ultimoorehey guys just wondering who is the media person for the Ubuntu Canada Loco?01:35
Ultimooreanyone online?01:42
DarwinSurvivori'm online01:44
DarwinSurvivorbut I have no idea who the media person is :P01:45
Ultimoorewell I need someone for CBC to talk to.01:45
Ultimooresay what?!01:51
willwh_say what?!02:59
willwh_I don't think there is an elected media person03:00
willwh_the best thing to do would probably be post to the ubuntu-ca mailing list03:00
willwh_I mean - bobjonkman is likely to know03:00
willwh_maybe dscassel too03:00
willwh_neither of whom seem to be around atm03:00
willwh_Ultimoore: do you know what the nature of the query is? :]03:01
willwh_maybe someone else can help?03:01
UltimooreIt will be most likely about Ubuntu for Android and Ubuntu TV03:01
willwh_ah probably03:01
willwh_they need to contact Canonical specifically for that I would say03:01
willwh_it's really nothing to do with the LoCo03:01
willwh_I would say03:02
willwh_whoever decides to write an article03:02
willwh_DO HOMEWORK03:02
willwh_TALK TO US03:02
willwh_don't do what the Guardian (in the UK did)03:02
willwh_when they mentioned ubuntu for android03:02
UltimooreI'm sure they will but remember CBC is about Canadian content so they may ask the Loco some questions03:02
willwh_the article was absolutely atrocious03:02
crondShould i buy a new laptop so I can do gaming?03:02
willwh_well - I am from Scotland :)03:02

willwh_crond: I wouldn't03:03
crondwillwh_, yes, basically the same thing03:03
willwh_well - if you are going to - at the very least get an SSD in there03:03
willwh_5,200 rpm just doesn't cut it any more03:03

willwh_Ultimoore: are you in contact with the CBC?03:04
