  Hi All,

  Well, I'll nominate myself for a second term, and see what you all
  think about that.

  The field of candidates this election is quite rich with excellent
  choices, especially if all of Jaffa's nominees step up and accept
  their nominations (which I sincerely hope that they do). I would be
  honoured (and somewhat relieved) to lose my seat to any of my worthy

  Here's some points for you to think about when considering me for a
  second term on the Maemo Community Council:


  * I have the highest number of "thanks" on talk.maemo.org [1]: Either
  I'm helpful, or I know how to "game" the system.  Or both.
  * I survived a term on the council, and I now "know the ropes" a bit
  better. I can help bring some continuity to the council.
  * I am a good bridge between the "power users" and the "developers"
  since I'm a bit of both (but mostly a "power user").
  * I stay current on the forums, and I think that I have a fairly good
  sense of what the issues are in the community.
  * I believe that I am a good writer.
  * I love the Internet Tablets, Maemo and open source software.
  * As a Canadian, I can understand how cold weather and a harsh
  environment can shape the mindset of the Finnish people. I therefore
  can understand how Nokia thinks. ;-)
  * I have a good sense of humour... And nice eyes.


  * I'm not a good administrator. I could draw up an agenda or chair a
  sprint meeting only under emergency circumstances. ;-)
  * I have been known to be incautious in my phrasing. My inflammitory
  posts have upset some central people in the Maemo community. This may
  happen again.
  * I am on the west coast of Canada. If I wish to attend an IRC
  meeting with European participants, I have to be up very early and
  the meeting has to start in the late afternoon. [2]
  So that's what I think about myself. If you want to form your own
  opinions, please peruse my posts on talk.maemo.org [3][4] or the
  mailing lists. My personality is there, in all its glory and horror.

  enthusiast, n. "One whose mind is wholly possessed and heated by what
  engages it; one who is influenced by a peculiar fervor of mind; an
  ardent and imaginative person."
