Greetings Maemo community,

Like my good friend Tim Samoff, I am submitting myself as a candidate for the
Hildon Foundation board.

Those who know me are familiar with my qualifications.  For those who don't,
here's a synopsis:

- Former Nokia quality engineer for early Maemo devices
- Prominent member of N800 launch team
- Early member of Internet Tablet Talk and maemo.org; helped develop community
- maemo.org forum moderator
- creator of Maemo (and MeeGo) Greeters program
- MeeGo community office member; created and coordinated device program
- 3-term maemo.org council member
- 2 term (and current) Nokia Developer Champion

Regardless of where my career and interests have taken me, I am a strong
advocate of open source, both software and hardware.  In addition to Maemo and
MeeGo involvement, I am also heavily plugged into 3D printing communities and
pushing for increased opportunities for community contributions to device
ecosystems (phone cases, sim card adapters, etc).

I've been very concerned with the negative tone I see permeating our community
and i would like to see us work at dispelling that.  We started as a can-do
collective of passionate, talented people and I would like to see that spirit
renewed.  I have hope that the Hildon Foundation will be sufficiently empowered
to turn this thing around!
