Would SpreadUbuntu be interested in presentations?

Asked by Craig A. Eddy on 2008-11-10

I recently gave a presentation on "Copyright, Licensing, FLOSS and FUD" which was a brief overview of what each of them was, and how they interacted in today's software world. This presentation is distributed under the Creative Commons License, Attribute required, No commercial use, Share alike 3.0. (However, being the creator, I have the right to relicense as necessary). The work was created in OpenOffice.org 2.4.

Admittedly, one would not necessarily think of a presentation as being marketing material, but I feel that there are too many questions (and too many derogatory comments from FLOSS detractors) that need to be answered before Ubuntu or any Free/Libre Open Source Software will gain acceptance in some quarters. It was for this reason that I created the presentation, first given at the ABLEconf Open Source Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. If you are interested (even just in carving the information up to use in other ways) please let me know and I would be happy to share it.

Hello Craig,

Thanks for sharing you presentation. I downloaded it from : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Presentations
I haven't used it yet but may be I'll translate it to French or Arabic someday.

odp file upload is authorized at SpreadUbuntu-DIY (http://ubuntu.ec/su/drupal5/?q=node/add/material) but the site admins may will have to add a category "Presentations" in addition to the existent brochure, poster,...
May be keeping presentations on the existent wiki page is also a good option.

Oh, I forgot this quote from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MarketingTeam/Projects/SpreadUbuntu

"The diy part is actually a dynamic repository, for posters, artwork, '''presentations''', flyers and general marketing and/or community resources"

So, the answer to your question is : Yes.

I have added a "presentation" category. Sorry I forgot to add it. Your presentation is more than welcome.

My only concern is that (i think) all 'materials' are required to have an image, which is a png, gif, or jpg. This is so we can have thumbnail previews. We currently do not have an automatic way of doing this. Do you think people would mind creating their own thumbnail?

Thanks Rafik Ouerchefani, that solved my question.
