Ubuntu, the Web and Me

I realize I haven’t blogged in a fair while, this is my first post of 2011. 2010 was a big year for me in the Ubuntu community, I participated in so many cool projects, events and activities, and perhaps more importantly, I learnt a great deal.

At the end of last year I created a big list of things I wanted to do in 2011, some of you may be thinking “how could this bloke possibly have the motivation for all these things!?”, my answer to that? I am motivated because of the great community around Ubuntu, FOSS and around the interwebs.

Now, I do not wish to share the list with you all, simply because it has many things on it that I do not wish to share with everyone.

Some of the cool things I did last year:

  • Joined the Ubuntu Manual project and helped to drive it forward I am still active within the project, although have a reduced role due to commitment to other projects.
  • Received Ubuntu Membership
  • Joined the Bugsquad
  • Joined the Ubuntu Developer Manual project
  • Joined the Ubuntu Youth Team
  • Greatly increased my activity on IRC and other sites like Identi.ca and Diaspora.
  • Started my own project called Pytask
  • Joined in on Ubuntu Opportunistic Developer Week and ran a session.

I am planning on making 2011 the year that I really put an effort in. To help with this, I have finally got enough money together to buy new hardware.

Also, many people have been asking me when the next release of Pytask will be coming, I have been working hard over Christmas to get the next release out. There are many useful improvements that have been made and Pytask will be available in over 10 languages as of next release, so hold on to your hats!
