Thank you, Andrew. I accept nomination.

Name: Stephen J. Gadsby
maemo.org: sjgadsby - http://maemo.org/profile/view/sjgadsby
Corporate affiliation: none relevant to Maemo

About me:

* I'm a mid-thirties-ish father of three who is a technology
generalist by trade and by nature.

* I joined the Maemo community--via itT--shortly after purchasing an
N800 in February of 2007.

* Since the spring of 2008, I've been publishing weekly "Bug Jars" to
summarize activity within maemo.org Bugzilla. Initially, this was to
help end users begin to understand that complex system, but the bug
reports quickly evolved to aid developers also.

* I follow all the maemo.org mailing lists and attend sprint meetings
to keep abreast of community activity and maemo.org development.

* I'm active on talk.maemo.org--for years as a user and now as a super
moderator. (I've yet to receive my cape though.) I enjoy answering
user questions there, and I now also work to organize threads and
eliminate spam.

* I can make a kazoo sound with my teeth.

My goals:

In short: to give back more to this community that gives so much.

I don't have an agenda beyond a desire and intention to work as I can
to help our community continue to improve as it grows. Really, I'll do
that whether selected for the council or not though.

Thank you for your time, and I welcome your questions. Well, some
questions. I don't know where you left your car keys.
