Dr Pam H They're going to roll out the new plan of action very soon which is being finalized in the US. That should be a brilliant thing to publicize.

Topaztree Good idea, Quasi http://www.vistaprint.com/ are very good value for money - If Ubuntu provide any artwork you can upload it - or else design the flyers yourself. But if anyone has a local recommendation - supporting local is always good.
I wouldn't mind getting some printed myself so will be interested to hear if HQ provide any artwork.
If there are any other Ubuntu members in your area possibly you could all contribute a little to costs (make sure everyone agrees on the design if you design it yourselves) and share out the flyers so you all have some to distribute.

Quasimodo Good thinking, I have posted a comment in response to Matt who is looking into why the Ubuntu uk party site can't be accessed. Maybe he might be able to find out if a leaflet will be designed for the new plan roll out (like you mentioned Dr Pam). I'm just keen to start letting people know and would like to hand them something with the core info on (and maybe some inspiring pics) to get them interested and plant the seed like Michael suggests 😀

Dr Pam H Great. Let me know what Matt says and I'll let you know when I hear anything from the US, or if I design a flyer myself which is on my list to do in case they keep taking too long.

Quasimodo Perfect, I was reading the Ubuntu book last night and Michael says even if it's just planted a seed in the subconscious it is doing something. Eventually hopefully people will be triggered to wake up and the answers will be available already in their subconscious or the collective conscious 😊

Dr Pam H Yes. I am working on giving feedback to Michael T about the listing of documents on the website and looking through all my many files about which ones will be best to create new advertising fliers (in case they take too long) and a research paper I'm going to write. I would eventually like to help update the book as well.
Dr Pam H Okay. I have submitted a trifold brochure this morning via email to Michael T, Susan J, and asked them to forward it to other Ubuntu USA leaders for critiquing.

Quasimodo That's brilliant.👍 Since we have spoke I just made up a basic A4 poster showing the logo and a Michael quote saying if it's not good enough for everyone, it's no good at all (another person gave me that idea on here, can't remember user name at mo) and I said join the movement and put the Ubuntu planet web address on. I've put it up in a few places already. 😀 It's only basic but I just wanted to start doing something to spread the seeds 🌾 I look forward to seeing the brochure x

Quasimodo Any word on the plan of action roll out?

Dr Pam H Quasimodo - Hi. Today I found out the link to existing marketing materials they have for Ubuntu. I downloaded a bunch of them from there. I hate to say it but I like my brochure a lot better. It is very specific. My stuff is targeted at leaders and groups who already know what Ubuntu is and they are ready to move. The pre-existing materials are for people who don't know anything about Ubuntu Contributionism. Now that I know the appropriate 2 people to send to for approval, I will submit mine as well. In the meantime, here is the link to get the approved stuff. http://unpluggedspirit.com/ind…

Quasimodo Hi, that's brilliant, thank you. I will take a look. That's good you have found some people to send your brouchure to. Both areas of aware Andy in-aware people need information so I hope you get your support approved 😌

Dr Pam H Thank you. Right now, I'm mostly focused on a research paper I'm writing which includes Ubuntu Contributionism. No thoughts about brochures until that is done.
