Going mainstream

In our LoCo Team, we have been working very hard on spreading the word. Besides the events and the on-line activities, we try to reach the non-geek audience by publishing FOSS related articles in the local media on a regular basis.

In this line, a new communication project was born a few months ago within the Nicaraguan LUG, and yesterday we received some great news.

Canal 2, Nicaragua’s biggest television network, is going to broadcast a weekly technology show every Tuesday, starting July 15.

The producers of this new show are… yes, you guessed it! …our local LUG!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reach virtually every Nicaraguan household and spread the word about the greatness of Free and Open Source Software.

I’m absolutely thrilled with this project, but I’m also a pretty scared… produce 4-5 quality shows a month is a HUGE challenge. Are we up to it? Definetly! Bring it on!

    There’s going to be a live video streaming at the channel’s website, and hopefully we’ll upload the show on the LoCo Teams youtube channel as well.

    I’ll post some more detailed info as soon as I have it.

    Mi más sincera enhorabuena, Leogg. Ánimo y ojalá que os vaya todo estupendamente, que lo merecéis. Será estupendo seguiros la pista si ponéis en marcha algún foro para los espectadores o algún otro tipo de “ventana” para la audiencia. ¡Ojalá cunda el ejemplo en otros lugares y el software libre reciba apoyos tan claros como éste! ¡Un abrazo!
