Andrew is probably one of the best known "personalities" of maemo.org.
He was one of the early defenders of the whole principle of the
Council, and has been part of the whole "internet tablet experience"
ever since it started, and maybe even before that. Andrew is the kind
of person who is cut out for this position (until he goes to do even
greater things). He knows how to express himself in a way that will
convey his ideas exceptionally well and due to his professional track
record, he is also able to spin these same ideas orally, in front of
an audience. Andrew has proven on numerous occasions that he was an
invaluable member of this community, and his humility in most regards
is quite simply an amazing example of how to behave in any community.

By trade, Andrew is a Java developer/architect/consultant, which, even
if it doesn't relate immediately to Maemo, ensures that at least when
he leaves the office he'll want to do something else, safeguarding the
fact his motivation and dedication will be undisputed. What his
current job also implies is that Andrew understands how a corporation
works and how the different management levels work and think. This
gives him an incredible advantage when communicating with Nokia.

Andrew has expressed he did not want to present himself for the
Council at this election, as he feels new blood might ensure a dynamic
continuity of the work that is being rendered by the Council. Today,
during a presentation about the maemo.org community in London, Andrew
said (something along the lines of): "In order to be part of this
community, the only requirement is to be selfish. If you want
something, then somebody else might want the same thing, and working
together you both benefit from it". As such, I would like to nominate
Andrew, once again, to be one of the candidates of the 2010 Q1

Please do show your support, as is it only by seeing a lot of nodding
and approval that he will not refuse the nomination outright.
