I'd like to nominate Pieter De Graef (contact data in cc) to be an
OSGeo Charter Member.
Pieter is an active member and chair on the PSC of the Geomajas project .
He also is a regular speaker on FOSS4G conferences, having a talk in
Cape-town (2008), Sydney (2009), Barcelona (2010), Denver (2011),
One of the presentations I could find back online was .
Pieter also is an advocate to implement open source solutions into the
processes of administrations. He is a project leader in some large
integration projects, completely based on open source. A nice example
of a public service can be found here   among a lot of other
Pieter is also responsible for the geomajas section on the liveDVD and
is working hard to bring the usability of the framework to a level it
becomes very easy to adopt, without giving up on the original goals
I work with Pieter almost 10 years together and I am happy to see he
is working really hard to spread the word of FOSS in his environment.
I asked Pieter to create an advocate profile asap
