    The part about trying Fedora on the netbook is trivial: download a F12 live image, put in on an USB stick (however, I don’t know how you do that from Ubuntu, I am familiar with doing it from either Fedora or Windows) and then boot from the stick.
    Stay with it for a few days and when you feel comfortable use the “install to hard drive” icon.

    @nicu – Thanks! I’ll try that. I bet I can figure out the image to usb stick bit from my Mac or my PC. Now, figuring out how to boot from it maybe the challenging part.

    Your geek cred is way up there – and it’s in an unique area where you’ve got lots of opportunity to share things with the rest of us that we don’t know, but ought to be aware of.

    Think of it this way: it would be fairly simple for me to find a couple dozen people who could package a CMS module I needed, but very difficult for me to find someone to help me build a mental framework for understanding how, say, offline interactions among members of the Marketing team affect community retention and participation.

    And THAT is why I’m so excited about you coming on board – because of your willingness to teach and explain a way of thinking that may be less familiar to some of us here, you’re adding a tremendous deal to our ability to be a neurodiverse community, which lets us solve the problems that we choose to tackle far more powerfully.

    Also, thanks for going through the .planet stuff – after talking with both you and Karlie Robinson, I’m starting to come to the conclusion that we may need a better “get your blog on planet” tool/process design, because it assumes a certain kind of tool/skill setup I’m not sure is fair to assume of every new Fedora contributor… but that’s a longer discussion to be had on IRC or on some mailing list somewhere, so I’ll see you online. 😉
