It is my pleasure to nominate Dirk Frigne
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/User:Dirkf), from Belgium, for the OSGeo
Board. Dirk has that rare passion and vision for community, and speaks
strongly about building and maintaining a healthy OSGeo 'ecosystem' made
up of both the development community as well as professional service
providers.  A "do-er", he has built his company Geosparc
(http://www.geosparc.com/) and the OSGeo project geomajas into strong
and healthy entities.

Dirk also feels strongly about building local OSGeo communities.  He
recently helped form the new Belgium local chapter
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Belgium), and he is actively trying to
formalize a European representation of OSGeo.

Dirk understands the industry today, our community, the software, and is
willing to help guide the growth of the foundation. I feel strongly that
he would be a wonderful addition to the OSGeo Board of Directors.
