"For crying out loud Amber, it’s just a stupid newsletter"
… and the second I said this sentence to Amber Graner at UDS I followed it up with “in the same way that it’s just an operating system, and it’s just a computer, really, it’s not worth it.”
And that made me feel better after totally thrusting a spear into her chest.
We were about 10 minutes into the "Let’s have someone work on Ubuntu Weekly News and not make them want to kill themselves" session (note: the proper name might have been different.)
I’d like to see people pick this up. Sometimes we have a tendency to chew people up. (Actually Amber blew out her knee at the airport, people will say it’s chance, but I’m going to call the burnout card on this one, mwahahaha).
No really, the team needs help. If 3-5 people joined the team we’d have a nice balanced workload, there’s no reason why we should have people killing themselves over a newsletter …
I am totally playing the “Project Asshole Joker Card” on this one. UWN has been limping along crushing people who have been trying to make it work. We need to have people step up and making it rock before people like Amber quit.
