18:04:02 <Cheri703> #topic Blueprint progress
18:04:55 <Cheri703> hmm...actually, anyone else here for the meeting? we'll start there
18:05:24 <meskarune> me
18:05:31 <meskarune> I'm sure other people are too
18:06:30 <Cheri703> Ok, so Blueprint progress! 18:06:31 * Pici lurks
18:06:35 <Cheri703> #link https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu-women.org/+spec/community-q-ubuntu-women-project-goals
18:06:55 <Cheri703> I have completed mine, (updating wiki right now)
18:07:06 <Cheri703> I will report on that, but has anyone else made progress on their items?
18:07:40 <pleia2> I am in research mode for all of mine, no progress to report
18:07:47 <Cheri703> ok, actually I don't know if I can update the blueprint... pleia2 maybe can do that?
18:07:52 <Cheri703> ok.
18:07:56 <pleia2> anyone on the team can
18:08:18 <Cheri703> ok, nvm >.> I will update mine later today
18:08:34 <pleia2> jledbetter has been doing well with the election stuff
18:08:44 <Cheri703> I spoke with Pendulum, and we are going to team up on the task of getting the old FCM UW interviews put on the blog.
18:08:52 <pleia2> great
18:09:38 <Cheri703> As far as search engine visibility, I went to google via chromium, using an incognito window
18:09:49 <Cheri703> search terms and results were as follows:
18:10:02 <Cheri703> "ubuntu" first on 3rd page of results
18:10:09 <Cheri703> "ubuntu women" first \o/
18:10:17 <Cheri703> "ubuntu female" first
18:10:25 <IdleOne> o/
18:10:27 <Cheri703> "ubuntu ladies" some..interesting pictures, blog.ubuntu-women.org is the second to last on the first page, official uw home page not in the first 10 pages, though many references to uw on other pages
18:10:35 <Cheri703> "number of female ubuntu users" second result
18:10:41 <Cheri703> "foss women" not in the first 10 pages
18:10:48 <Cheri703> "floss women" not in the first 10 pages (though I wasn't expecting much)
18:10:56 <Cheri703> "ubuntu community" not in the first 10 pages
18:11:08 <Cheri703> That last one is the one I think we have the best shot at influencing
18:11:27 <Cheri703> that and "ubuntu ladies"
18:12:03 <Cheri703> There was discussion at UDS about trying to get us linked from the official ubuntu community page, I think that is pleia2's work item
18:12:24 <pleia2> yeah, so it looks unlikely since all other things about updating that community page have stalled
18:12:41 <pleia2> but we are still on edubuntu.org!
18:12:50 <Cheri703> ok. perhaps then trying to make sure that our own pages and blog reference community a lot
18:12:52 <Cheri703> \o/
18:12:59 <pleia2> (yay highvoltage)
18:13:54 <Cheri703> anyone have questions or suggestions regarding the search engine visibility?
18:14:40 <pleia2> thanks for working on this
18:14:44 <Cheri703> sure
18:14:50 <Cheri703> anyone have questions or suggestions regarding the blueprint?
18:15:15 <pleia2> I'm going to try to meet with paulproteus in meatspace for some of the openhatch stuff
18:15:34 <Cheri703> sounds good
18:16:10 <Cheri703> #topic Career Days
18:16:14 <Cheri703> So
18:16:19 <Cheri703> Career Days has fizzled.
18:16:42 <Cheri703> We had a really good response to the sessions we have had thus far, and I would really like to continue them, BUT we need volunteers to present
18:17:12 <Cheri703> OR we need you to badger your friends into presenting >.>
18:17:21 <pleia2> hehe
18:17:53 <Pendulum> Has anyone asked czajkowski?
18:18:01 <Cheri703> if anyone has suggested folks who aren't directly part of UW, please ask them if it's alright, and then I'd be happy to get in contact and discuss
18:18:19 <Cheri703> not to my knowledge?
18:18:31 <Cheri703> *has someone they would suggest, not has suggested in the past
18:18:44 <Cheri703> I don't want to contact people out of the blue
18:18:45 <Dolasilla> not sure my experience can be interesting, but I can try and add my name
18:18:53 <Cheri703> oh, also:
18:19:05 <Cheri703> #link http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/CareerDays
18:19:13 <Dolasilla> (my experience == computer engineer )
18:19:57 <Cheri703> Dolasilla: we can talk more if you'd like, and absolutely. It's not required to be "omg I've had an amazing journey" (though some have been that and been awesome), it is more about "this is what I do all day at my job that is defined as <job title>"
18:20:22 <Cheri703> "this is what's awesome about it, this is what is not awesome" 18:20:29 * Cheri703 needs to use awesome less
18:20:54 <pleia2> hang around czajkowski, she'll cure you of it (she hates the word)
18:21:04 <Dolasilla> Cheri703, ok, let's talk about it via email after this meeting, I will tell you a bit about what I do
18:21:10 <Cheri703> sounds good
18:21:34 <Cheri703> thanks Dolasilla!
18:22:03 <Cheri703> If anyone else wants to or knows someone who might, we can work around the schedule of the presenter, if you're not free until december, we can plan for december. That is fine!
18:22:15 <Dolasilla> my pleasure
18:23:17 <Cheri703> ok, that's all I had on career days
18:23:29 <Cheri703> #topic New Items
18:23:33 <Cheri703> anyone have any?
18:23:41 * Dolasilla needs to leave -- bye!
18:24:04 <pleia2> I think that's all I've got
18:24:27 <Cheri703> ok
18:24:31 <Cheri703> #topic Announcements
18:24:47 <meskarune> oh what is carreer days?
18:24:49 <Cheri703> UDS Sponsorship closes 08/17
18:24:55 <Cheri703> http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/CareerDays
18:25:36 <pleia2> people come in and talk about their careers (and often how it intersects with tech/open source/ubuntu)
18:25:43 <meskarune> I could maybe do that
18:25:50 <meskarune> I'm working for Linode righ t now
18:26:01 <meskarune> but I have to ask my boss how much information I'm allowed to disclose
18:26:07 <meskarune> they are pretty secretive
18:26:09 <meskarune> lol
18:26:12 <Cheri703> we don't want to get anyone in trouble!
18:26:22 <meskarune> well, I'll ask and we'll see
18:26:25 <Cheri703> it doesn't need to be "and I work on this specific thing" it can be semi-general
18:26:30 <meskarune> I can talk about my job, and maybe arch women?
18:26:47 <Cheri703> sure
18:26:48 <meskarune> I mostly do support now, and fiddle around with their stuff
18:27:11 <meskarune> ok, let me put this on my list so I don't forget. also bug me about it in the future :P
18:27:28 <Cheri703> oh trust me, bugging people is one of my specialties
18:27:48 <meskarune> hhehe
18:28:59 <Cheri703> Anyone applying for UDS sponsorship? I have, and I know there are many people who will help with applications (I think we had a thing on the site but I can't find it right now, pleia2 do you know where it is?)
18:31:37 <Cheri703> Well, if you're interested in applying, here is jono's blog post about UDS sponsorship:
18:31:41 <Cheri703> #link http://www.jonobacon.org/2012/08/01/ubuntu-developer-summit-sponsorship-now-open-4/
18:31:54 <Cheri703> and you can ask in #ubuntu-women if you'd like assistance in the next few days.
18:33:00 <Cheri703> ok, does anyone else have anything for the meeting?
18:33:18 <pleia2> thanks Cheri703!
18:34:02 <Cheri703> alright
18:34:04 <Cheri703> #endmeeting
