* As of now, our overall plan is geared to promoted Ubuntu and Open Source computing in the State of Arizona. We do this through our events, and working with the state LUGs. By working with the state LUGs, we are able to pool our resources in order to reach a broader base of users in Arizona. Because our team has an abundance of resources available from Ubuntu, it is up to us to help in any way we can to help promote open source computing in Arizona. By doing this we effectually broaden our base, and the open source base in Arizona.
