Ask Me Anything on Monday

On Monday 13th Jan starting at 6pm UTC (10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern) I will be doing an AMA on Reddit. For those unfamiliar with this – this is where you can ask me anything on Reddit, and the most popular questions and responses are up/down voted.

The post will go live about 30mins before that time so you can start adding questions.

I welcome questions about absolutely anything to do with Ubuntu, Canonical, community management, working in the Open Source industry, writing books, podcasting, free culture, heavy metal, moving from England to America, or anything else. Let’s have some fun!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with my work, I work at Canonical as the Ubuntu Community Manager, I am the author of The Art of Community by O’Reilly, founder of the annual Community Leadership Summit, and have spoken around the world about community leadership and encouraging people to get together to create awesome things.

Outside of my work, I co-founded the Bad Voltage, Lugradio, and Shot Of Jaq podcasts, founded the Creative Commons metal band Severed Fifth, wrote an archive of Creative Commons music, built the BBQ website BBQpad, write for various magazines (Linux Format / Ubuntu User), and have contributed to various Open Source projects.

I will follow up on Twitter/Google+ with a link to the thread when it is published.

    You ARE the Ubuntu Community? (“I work at Canonical as the Ubuntu Community”). Whoops, just a missing word there, right?

    Beat me to that Rik :D

    Oops! Sorry about that. Fixed! :-)

    @jonobacon:disqus, rest assured you didn’t offend and you can breathe easy (I am not about to make any snide remarks around the interwebs about how the Canonical Community has been shut down and replaced by one self-righteous megalomaniac, for example :-)

    I think you and your team are doing a great job and look forward to the discussion on Monday

    Love to watch these q&a sessions, but I always seem to miss them. How about putting a google+ event to help us hopeless romantics be there?
