Scaling the Ubuntu Community by Taking It Local

Registered by Randall Ross on 2011-10-31

If we are to grow Ubuntu's user base by a factor of 10, we need to look at ways to scale the community. Community growth is a key to taking Ubuntu to people who have never seen it or heard of it.

Here's one powerful way to scale: Build local communities at a town/city level. Make Ubuntu more of an in-person phenomenon, and less of a virtual one.

We should gather and discuss how to make this happen, as well as any other thoughts for scaling.
