I was thinking of running a ubuntu for beginners workshop in the new year, something to explain the system and the philosophy to some average windows/mac users. I think that the key audience would be those who are quite political, generally a bit rebellious, or
anti-capitalist - but people who didn't know about ubuntu before hand. We have a lot of these people in Manchester, not too-hard to get a group together : )
I'm not very good at computers but I am good at running events and making things simple. I can't do much till after the 5th of January cause I have too much uni work on. But after than I am free to do!
Who would like to help and do too?

Thats sounds like a great idea.
I'd like to help, in some way. I've run events before and currently have a group of Ubuntu Gurus that run installfests and provide Ubuntu centric guidance at events.
Take a look at my blog for more info
Also, myself, Jon Spriggs and Michael Dorrington organise an event called Ucubed, an Ubuntu / Debian event in Manchester. The next one is scheduled for the 2nd of April 2011. Maybe you could run a similar workshop then aswell?
Happy to help / advise.
