Ubuntu Books, The Unboxing

So today I was happy enough to be greeted with a nice shiny brown box . Filled with new books Ubuntu Server and Ubuntu Desktop.

These books were a present to our Loco from Heather Fox and Debra Williams-Cauley see for more details.

Problem with this is that the idea behind these books is they were supposed to be shared among the Loco and every one was supposed to have a chance. Our loco Ubuntu-ZA is spread all around and way way across the county.¬† So sharing doesn’t seem like a realistic option. So I am looking for suggestions as to what we can do with these snazzy new books.

Before I requested them  Maia suggested we will decide when we get them so now it is time. Possible options are

  • Random raffle and give them out to the winner.
  • Make it a prize for a competition such as designing our new Ubuntu-ZA T-Shirts(or any thing else we can think of)
  • ….
  • Insert your ideas here?

Any how I am never very good at these type of things so for now I will keep them safe until we can decide what to do with them.
