It is my pleasure to nominate Asger Sigurd Petersen
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Advocate#Asger_Sigurd_Skovbo_Petersen), from 

Denmark, as an OSGeo Charter Member.  Asger is a long-time FOSS4G vocal
advocate and developer in the Danish community.  When the Danish
national mapping agency (Danish Geodata Agency) released all of their
data as Open, Asger and others formed Septima, a company focusing on
delivering innovative solutions to Danish citizens through Open software
and Open data.  Asger is also involved in several OSGeo projects,
contributing patches and plugins for QGIS, GDAL, and others.

Asger is very well spoken, in several languages, and has been presenting
at the global FOSS4G events for many years.

I ran into Asger in the hallway of FOSS4G-Como, and it was once of the
most interesting talks I had that week, hearing his opinions on Open
data and Open software.

Please welcome Asger's passion and knowledge into the OSGeo foundation,
as a Charter member.
