Jam Jam… Ubuntu Global Jam… Art Jam

The Ubuntu Global Jam is coming soon. To be exact the Jam will run March 2nd through the 4th all across the globe and that is roughly two weeks away. When I first think about Global Jam events I think technical:

  • Blog about producing art for Ubuntu Global Jam
  • Bugs – finding, triaging and fixing bugs
  • Testing – testing the new release and reporting your feedback
  • Upgrade – upgrading to Precise from Oneiric and reporting your upgrade experience
  • Documentation – writing documentation about how to use Ubuntu and how to join the community
  • Translations – translating Ubuntu and helping to make it available in everyone’s local language
  • Packaging – work on Ubuntu packages and improve them

Recently, though, I realized that the Ubuntu Global Jam must engage others in the community of Ubuntu users. The Creative. Those that create beauty. The artists! There are some easy ways to contribute:

Why contribute?

  • Create work that is valuable to others and answers real-world needs but avoid the hassles of commercial work
  • Add to your portfolio
  • Gain experience, hone your skills
  • Become recognized as contributing artist or designer
  • Do your part to move the Ubuntu project forward
  • Add beauty and sophistication to the world

Here are two places to upload your artwork:

You can also use flickr or twipics and just announce your art via twitter using the #ubuntu hastag. Let the world of Ubuntu users see your talent!! Its time for an Ubuntu Art Jam. Speaking of that… there is a need for some artwork that represents the Ubuntu Art Jam!!
