where is that? i never saw such a ad!
Do we have any idea who paid to have it put up?
Who do you think?
That ad is on highway 101 northbound, just after the Ralston exit, in Redwood City, CA.
I took the picture from my cellphone cam going 70 mph. No idea who paid to put it up, but my guess is Canonical is probably involved.
If it’s the sign I drove past today, it’s just outside Palo Alto/Mountain View, on US101, heading north toward SFO.
The “(Servers and)” scribble looks very afterthought or graffiti. Perhaps this was done by actual people? (-:
Surely the whitespace and layout suggests purpose…
jdub, that space ain’t white. :o)
I passed that on my way home from work a week or so ago — got a kick out of it. That stretch of 101 seems to attract a broader variety of billboards than the usual “you are inadequate, buy this product” sort.
Great! I think that this’s is a good way to increment our community
Ubuntu is clearly engaging in ecologically sound brownspace infill server development to beautify the urban core.
IMO I don’t think it was a good idea to like-additionaly place “servers” before “humans”. It makes it look like the “unknown” person thought Ubuntu is not suitable primarily for people. Placing “servers” after “people” would be a better marketing act making it look like Ubuntu is so good that while-being user-friendly it is ALSO capable of server operation. Server admins don’t look for OS on billboards while normal users can IMO.
