Dear All,

I am delighted to learn that Maxi is standing for reelection to the 
OSGeo Board.
I have know Maxi since the first FOSS4G conference held in Bangkok in 2004.
I was a student that time and the interaction with Maxi was one of the
big motivation for me to take up on FOSS4G for my research and subsequently
in my teaching.

It is really a pleasure to discuss with Maxi as he is full of ideas and 
completely devoted
to the Free and Open Source philosophy. Maxi has implemented several 
projects in
Asia including Thailand and also played a vital role at conferences, 
workshops and
seminars to spread the use of FOSS4G.

I would like to express my strong support for his nomination and look 
to his continued contribution to the OSGeo foundation in the capacity as
a Board Member.

Best of luck to Maxi
