I second the nomination of Chris.  I met Chris in person at FOSS4G 
Denver (and Andrew finally in fact ha!), but I've been watching how he 
is regarded in the community for a while - building cool software, 
holding events like JS.Geo (which I see he has announced for 
September)...he is full of energy and enthusiasm and a wonderful speaker 
and representative of OSGeo and FOSS4G.  To me he and Andrew will always 
be part of that cool new crowd, the new kids on the block with fresh 
ideas and passion, and we can learn from them both! :)
