Hello, World!

Hello, World!

This is the first (in hopefully many) of our official Ubuntu LoCo Council blog posts.

I hear many of you asking “Why” out there. Well, we figured the that it might actually help a few different ways. The first (and largest) reason is that this will enhance transparency on the team. We’ll be doing all sorts of fun community-based posts, updates, and news.
We think it makes a bit more sense then keeping things tagged on Planet Ubuntu, in case anyone would care to directly subscribe (or provide a service that displays!) Ubuntu LoCo Council posts.

Anyway, without further ado, let’s do the typical first-post kind of stuff!

Your LoCo Councilors are Laura Czajkowski, Alan Pope, Christophe Sauthier, Chris Crisafulli, Paul Tagliamonte and Leandro G√≥mez (in no particular order). We may all be reached on the LoCo Mailing List, “loco-council” <loco-council@lists.ubuntu.com>. Keep in mind that we do moderate it, so please don’t worry about the bounce message!

We can also be found on IRC, in Freenode/#ubuntu-locoteams . If you would like to ping us, please just ask the bot! All you have to do is say “!lococouncil”, and we get the ping.
