For anyone living in or near Chicago, we will be holding a Key Signing / Planning event on Sunday, June 28th, from 2:00 pm untill 6:00 pm. The event will take place at onShore Networks: 1407 W Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60642. Here is the email that got sent out to the mailing list the other day
On Sunday, June 28, from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm, we will be holding the first Ubuntu Chicago event of the Summer . This event will serve two purposes. It will be a key signing party as well as a planning meeting. Key signing parties are a great way to extend the web of trust. This is very important if you are involved in Ubuntu/Debian development, since GPG keys are used to verify your identity and allow developers to upload to the repositories. In order to ensure that this key signing event goes smoothly, please be sure to bring some government issued identification in order to allow other people to verify your identity. Also, please print out your GPG key fingerprint, which can be generated with 'gpg --fingerprint <KEYID>'. So for me, I would enter 'gpg --fingerprint 3933A7CE'. Besides the key signing portion of the event, we will also be taking time to plan some future events. These events will include Packaging/Bug/Documentation Jams, as well as several other activities. If you have some ideas for future sessions that we should hold, or are interested in helping to lead one of these sessions, please let us know at the meeting. The owners of onShore Networks have kindly permitted us to use their offices for our meeting. Therefore, the upcoming meeting will take place at onShore Networks : 1407 W Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60642. We hope to see you all there.  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ChicagoTeam/Projects  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ChicagoTeam/Meetings/MeetingLocations#onShore%20Networks
