thank you for nominating me. It is an honor! In addition to the information provided on the nomination page (http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/New_Member_Nominations_2010), which covers my involvement in the Open Geospatial world very well, here is some information on what I care about with respect to OSGeo:

I am an active contributor to several OSGeo software projects, and as such I know that it is good to have a bit of structure beyond project community and contributing organizations, e.g. to help raising funds for code sprints or resolve licensing issues. As a charter member, my aim would be OSGeo helping software projects in that matter.

I am a regular at major geospatial conferences in Austria and Germany. I see how hard it is for project communities to create promotional materials. As a charter member, I would like to see OSGeo help organize cross-organizational efforts to promote OSGeo projects. Where involved organizations are not able to, OSGeo should spend money on project marketing.

Thanks for your votes :-)
