The Fridge

Most of us have reminders about events, appointments, birthday's, and so on. We use our phones, computers, day timers, lists – and yes, some of us even post information on the refrigerator. Well the Ubuntu Community is no different. We have The Fridge , a reminder to the community of those meetings that we want you to participate in and be part of. So today let's take at a closer look at The Fridge.

The Fridge has news about community. The leading news story on The Fridge yesterday morning was: 2009 Community Council vote complete, an article announcing who the new Ubuntu Community Council Members are. (Congratulations are in order for Alan Pope, Benjamin Mako Hill, Daniel Holbach, Elizabeth Krumbach, Matthew East, Mike Basinger, and Richard Johnson!)

Let's take a look at the Calendar on The Fridge. This calendar has the #ubuntu-meeting schedule information on it. Of note, all Ubuntu IRC channels are found on Freenode.

If you want more information about Kernel, Server, Desktop, Edubuntu, Kubuntu, QA Team, and other team meetings, the check out The Fridge calendar, which is viewable by week, month, or agenda. Click on a specific meeting to find out more information about it. If you are using Google Calendar, you can add the meeting to your personal calendar by clicking copy to my calendar . In the weekly view, for example, I clicked on Karmic Weekly Release meeting to get more information, you can see the link to click for copy to my calendar . See how easy it to keep up with the meeting(s) of your choice?
