Essential topics to get people to start helping out

I’m going to try one of these “dear lazyweb” thingies for the first time.

On saturday, all us latin american folks are having a contintent-wide install fest names Flisol.

This year I’m going to be giving a talk on how to help out in the community, and use very practical examples, even doing some of the work live (translate, for example).

The goal is to encourage more people to help out, and show them clear easy ways to do so.

Now, the big question: What topics do you think that should absolutely be mentioned?

Now, back to my slides…  🙂

Hardy Heron release party Argentina

Well, all the cool kids are doing it, so, here goes.

Tomorrow we’ll be getting together to celebrate an amazing Ubuntu release, and probably drink much more than we should*.
I’d like to invite anyone lurking around Buenos Aires to drop by, the more the merrier.
