It is my pleasure to nominate Kari Salovaara
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Kari_Salovaara), from Finland, as an OSGeo
Charter Member.  Kari has a lot of experience and a long history of
development, but many will know of his tireless work translating to
Finnish, software projects like QGIS, GRASS, Geopaparazzi.  He is very
active locally, and in fact he is part of big news about to be announced
by the Finland local chapter (he was nominated as chair).  It's a credit
to his hard work.

Kari can be found at many FOSS4G events, and will share a laugh and talk
about FOSS, with a good story to go along with it.

Kari would be a great asset as a Charter member of the foundation.
