Ubuntu Indaba!

That’s a cool sounding greeting, isn’t it? Or maybe it’s a creative expletive.

Of course, I have no idea what it really means. But I want to be trendy and multicultural like these crackers ++Rowan Williams and The Episcopal Church.

If the page for Ubuntu Linux is correct, then "Ubuntu" is defined as:

Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Humanity to others', or 'I am what I am because of who we all are'.

You're on your own for "Indaba".

Kind of like Hakuna Matata, eh?

No worries, mate! Even tho' as we speak the lion is seeking its prey . . . )

Some commentors say this Ubuntu Adaba is merely a clever (and deceptive) way to both foist the Delphi technique on the conference and control the outcome and to try to convince everyone that, 'we tried to appeal to the Global South, speak their language (get down on their level) but they still won't play (make-believe games) with us.'
