[disclaimer: I'm the one who nominated Dan]

Having admired MapWindow from afar from some time, I had the opportunity to spend a couple days with Dan and his team a few months ago and came away very impressed.  Dan is doing a great job in bringing C#/.NET into the OSGeo world via the DotSpatial world, what with bringing a whole library into play and running a conference and yet still pursuing a geo research job.

A vote for Dan is a vote for...  oh, gosh, I dunno...  It's a vote to add a Third Way[1] to the C++ -vs- Java intertribal dialogs?  Something like that.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] Charter Member Nomination

Hi all, I appreciate being nominated as an OSGeo Charter Member. I've been participating with OSGeo since the 2006 Lausanne conference and am regularly involved in the edu committee and newsletter/journal committee. I've funded sponsorship at Lausanne, Sydney and Capetown and am always giving OSGeo pitches at other conferences I attend. Presently I'm helping lead the OSGeo DotNet programmer community including setting up the OSGeo DotNet mailing list, and helping kick off a new project of OSGeo DotNet programmers called DotSpatial (an API that brings together topology, visualization, data access, etc for the DotNet world). In addition to the DotSpatial project (by the way you can find it at http://dotspatial.codeplex.com) I manage the open source MapWindow project (http://mapwindow.org) which some of you may have heard of. I'd be happy to participate more fully with OSGeo through Charter Membership.

(P.S. I'm also organizing the 2011 MapWindow and OSGeo DotNet Conference in San Diego, California in June 2011. Please consider coming!!! See http://www.mapwindow.org/conference/2011/)
