> Dear CRO and all,
> we would like to nominate Dr. Nikos Alexandris for becoming an OSGEO
> Charter Member.
> Nikos has been a long advocate of Open Source GIS and OSGEO [1] and has
> been one very active person in supporting both since 2007 (and we know
> him since). He actually sees OSGEO as the means to actively cultivating
> a technologically advanced and socially aware geospatial way of thinking
> and acting.
> He has been actively involved in pushing Open Source GIS and OSGEO in
> both academic and industry-oriented settings and his passion has taken
> him recently from Greece up to India (TERI and Kurukshetra Universities)
> in order to promote specifically GRASS-GIS. He has participated in
> community sprints for GRASS-GIS, in the translation of the OSGEO web
> site to Greek and has been very active in the OSGEO Greek Chapter and
> the Greek Open Source community in general, especially by having
> participated in numerous events in Greece
> about Open Source in general and Open Source GIS specifically and has
> been interviewed about this for magazines. You can find more about Nikos
> at [2].
> We think that Nikos gathers all the required qualities specified in the
> OSGEO nomination pages for a charter member.
> Dimitris, as the founder of the Greek OSGEO Chapter, considers Nikos a
> valuable member
> of the OSGEO Greek Chapter and OSGEO in general and as OSGEO Charter
> Members we both think that Nikos' passion and dynamism will bring a lot
> of energy to OSGEO and that he carries all the necessary qualities to
> serve OSGEO from many different positions.
