Ubuntu Developer Summits Shifting Online, Increasing Frequency 49

hypnosec writes "Ubuntu Developer Summits Community Manager Jono Bacon has announced that the bi-annual Ubuntu Developer Summits, which were held at different locations like Brussels, Oakland, Copenhagen will be replaced by online events by moving to the cloud. Bacon revealed that the event has been successful, but in a bid to bring about improvements and refinement in the openness and accessibility of the event, it is going to transition into an online event." They are also going to be held every three months instead of every six.

    Didn't you know that Ubuntu, formerly a beloved Linux
    distribution, became a PR-Machine some time ago.

    In other words, Mr Shuttleworth, so long and thanks for all the fish.

    Actually, I would say thanks for spending a lot of money to create and promote a Linux distribution that even non-linux geeks have heard about. He has done more to increase exposure of Linux than most anyone. It's unfortunate that Canonical isn't doing well since I think most people would say that building a sustainable model to keep Linux in the spotlight is a good thing for the community as a whole. Guess what?... servers and bandwidth cost money. Advertising and putting on events cost money. When was the last time you contributed to your local LUG to keep it afloat?

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
