Yesterday I received an email that make me happy! I received an email from an Ubuntu Mail list, that was almost dead. In few words, the email said Ubuntu is going to be part of the Google Code In . This are great new!

But why I have a lot of interest that Ubuntu is part of the GCI?

Well. the first time I listen about the Google Summer of Code and Google Code In, was on 2010.
