Membership Granted

So, I'm in Colorado in the hotel lobby just after the meeting with the Colorado Team and Malcolm Yates. Christer and I are trying to get online with the free wireless provided by the hotel. All I want to do is check my email and IRC messages. I can't connect. However, Christer connects just fine, even though his connection is a little flaky.

All of the sudden, Christer leans over and tells me that my Ubuntu membership has finally been approved. Excited, I try to connect even more. I just can't get online. So, Christer lets me borrow his laptop. I see in the #ubuntu-utah channel that Tristan Rhodes just got his approval email, and that I need to check mine. Ugh. I can't. So, frustrated, I use Christer's laptop to check my email, and see the Good News.

I am finally an Ubuntu Member!

After waiting on the 'pending approval' list for about a month, membership was granted. Ultimately, I'm excited. However, I look at this as more responsibility. There's a lot on the plate currently, with my involvement with Ubuntu:

  • Supporting and encouraging the USTeams project to thrive and grow.
  • Help Christer strengthen the Ubuntu-Utah LoCo Team
  • Increase involvement with the Marketing Team
  • Supporting and advocating Ubuntu

So, as I've made goals to see these accomplished, I look forward to accelerating the Ubuntu name. Even if I can't connect, and have to use someone else's laptop. :)

    That was quite the trip and next time we'll need to make sure we've got reliable internet access!

    Glad to see you've finally got your approval, even under those circumstances. I'm glad to have you as part of our team and as a friend. Congratulations bud. Lets make this year even better for Utah!
