First: Happy new year to all at Fedora and Red Hat! This is my first entry of this year – so as usually like people do – I try to review what is done, and awaiting me.
It seems many things happened last year: we had a great event at Budapest, I’ve got more and more known as Ambassador here at Hungary, and lot of possible contributors are coming to me to talk about Fedora. This makes me inspiring, thinking to what could be more needed, or makes things better in this year.
Lot of to-do’s before me, and it seems that 2010 will be even more awesome (hopefully), and I’ll try to achieve as many as possible. From these to-do’s are a few will be hard, like to have an another main Fedora event at here Hungary. Two are basically is known, one at Szeged, one will be by FSF at Budapest (hopefully as last year), and a third as I would like to have at Pécs. This is an great opportunity to gain more Fedora contributors, but after several mailings it seems that city governing has other plans. Because of Pécs will be in this year the Cultural City of Europe in May, they could be saying to this event “No” – because the University part of their plans.
Therefore I think, I must switch to plan B – to find other city to get new home for the upcoming event at here. I have some possible University for that – but wish me luck. For the upcoming events here – several people asked from me to let’s have an small Fedora Cafe event in Győr to show the possibilities in Fedora 12. Well, I have suggested already several times and dates, but we will see this after the answers – and I’ll make immediately record into the Fedora events calendar and ask for swag & media. Futhermore, my biggest awaited event will be FOSDEM at Brussels, but not just for this – because I have never been in Belgium before.
Oh, about swag/media. I have last year contacted with Linuxmedia.hu, to let’s be a part of our free media project, and help us to spread Fedora discs. Well, after some hesitation, and mailing, chats with the leader of this company – it seems that he has no interest on this. Sad, but true. No matter, I have found an better and more professional company called StudioWorks – and they have very good prizes and sooo long references here: http://www.studioworks.hu/magyar/referenciak.htm
Just check them, I’ll think it has worth it – maybe also for producing our discs, and also maybe for boxes too.
Last year experience was also that people here not really know Fedora, and their respins. I thought that I make an small movie (2-4 mins), or an release movie to show the improvements, and get some new users. After the new release codename Goddard has born, I have gain some new idea. I have sent mails to NASA, and the Goddard Space Center to have freely usable orbital movieclips, maybe launch records too. I also sent mail one of the my favourite polish musician AM Samurai, and to VMRexor who as know as their pro videoclip director. (Both guys are registered at youtube). Result is: NASA has given to me an another mail contact to get access, and VM Rexor (who is also Fedora 11 user and programmer) will support me to create the Goddard release movie…
So, this year will be even greater as the earlier… Lot of things are coming, so… Let’s have it!
