Submission + - Ubuntu looking to make crowd-sourced promo video 1

Beacon11 writes: Alan Pope, a community advocate for Ubuntu, has requested comments and ideas regarding the creation of a crowd-sourced promo video that, in 30 seconds, conveys that Ubuntu is for everyone. From the post:

So for example you might see a woman on a train typing an article, a guy in an office creating a presentation, a kid on the sofa playing a game with a controller on their TV, someone watching a film, someone developing code, kids playing with robots, a farmer planning animal feeding. You get the idea.

So I’d really like to do this as a shared community project, with video clips submitted by Ubuntu users from around the world, perhaps even taking in a landmark or two here and there. I’d expect the video to represent the diversity of users, and variety of activities people are able to do with Ubuntu.

  • I want to be filmed hand editing a .conf file with a frustrated look on my face because I couldn't get a driver to work right. That pretty much describes my last Ubuntu experience in a nutshell.

    I know, I know... the new version is better. Or, at least that's what they've been telling me for the past 4 or 5 versions that I tried.
