I express my strong support for the candidature of Hayashi-san for the
upcoming OSGeo Board Election. Hayashi-san has played a stellar not
only in spreading OSGeo cause and technology but also greatly helped in
building a vibrant OSGeo.JP community. He has also authored books
on OSGeo technologies [e.g. 1] , is one of the main organizer of FOSS4G
events in Japan also responsible for the great animation videos for
teh foss4g events [e.g. 2, 3]
