I'd like to second this!
Here are my reasons for supporting Cameron's nomination:
Cameron has been active in the OSGeo community since its inception.
You may remember Cameron as one of the core developers behind Community Mapbuilder, GeoTools and OpenLayers. More recently he chaired the successful FOSS4G 2009 Conference in Sydney and now he is one of the driving forces behind the OSGeo-Live community.
He is a founding charter member of OSGeo and his active participation in many of the OSGeo committees and mailing lists (Discuss, Marketing, Education, FOSS4G, Conference, Incubator, Live-Demo and more) shows his ongoing dedication to OSGeo.
I have had the pleasure of working for and with him in a both a professional context, as well as being members of the Community Mapbuilder, OpenLayers and OSGeo-Live projects. His commitment to the community and and open standards are exemplary.
Cameron's experience, vision and dedication would make him a great addition to the board.
