It started off with me letting people know I was attending a great event next week. The Business Value of Open Source Software. Then the suggestion came out that we(ubuntu-ie) should give out the rest of the ubuntu 10.10 cds we had left. It turns out that we had a huge demand for the cds .We were sent 250 and now we had only 15 left. Cztab comes to the rescue. Within minutes of mentioning it on IRC, she had a shipit order placed for 100 cds. That was Tuesday and now Thuresday I get a knock on my door. A box of 100 ubuntu waiting for me.
After emailing the organizers asking could I give out the ubuntu cds, they offered us a table during the networking part of the event. I think I did not make myself clear as I had my Ubuntu-ie hat on and not my TOG one , as he now asked could TOG do a table at the event. So it started off that I was just going to listen to a few great talks and no I am running a table at the event. Its funny how things snowball.
