Subject: Nomination of Bastian Drees from TIB as OSGeo charter member
Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2017 22:47:52 +0200
From: Astrid Emde (OSGeo) <astrid_emde at osgeo.org>
To: cro at osgeo.org
I would like to nominate Bastian Drees .
Bastian organizes the publishing of our conference recordings at TIB AV
Portal . These are recordings from FOSS4G , FOSSGIS , FROSCON
 and other conferences and for example the GRASS video from 1987
spoken by William Shatner .
Bastian cares for the long term availability of OSGeo material,
especially videos such as conference recordings but also research data
- works on improving the discoverability and visibility of those
materials and wants to make them citable and interlinkable
- helps developing necessary infrastructures for these purposes based on
the needs of the OSGeo community 
- gives advice on publishing under open access licenses
- works together with the organizing committees of different FOSS4G and
FOSSGIS conferences on publishing conference recordings in the AV-Portal
- helps us with our ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) .
Read the article "404: Video not found – The TIB AV-Portal stops
scientific videos from disappearing" 
Read articles in Bastians blog about favorite highlights  & an
interview with Till Adams after FOSS4G 2016 .
See a talk from Bastian about "OSGeo Konferenzaufzeichnungen im TIB
AV-Portal" at FOSSGIS 2017 . He finished his talk with the words
based loosely on William Shatner:
"So don’t keep your scientific videos, your simulations, your
video tutorials and conference recordings rolled up in your private homepage
or stuffed into commercial platforms. Keep it in the TIB AV-Portal!"
Would be great to have him in the team as OSGeo Charter Member.
