Our deadline for announcing your candidacy to the Squeak Foundation Board
has passed, which means we have a final list of 12 candidates. They are:
Cees de Groot
Andrew P. Black
We have a short time to find out more about these candidates before the
election. I will be sending the same questions to each candidate and will
publish a final article on http://weeklysqueak.wordpress.com
. I will post
a link here when the article is finished. The answers will be published in
the order that I receive them back. Which could mean you should start
reading at the bottom!
In the mean time I encourage people to support your favorite candidate!
Please post a recommendation for your favorite candidate, include details
about that candidate that people may not know. It is sometimes difficult
for people to talk about themselves so I encourage you to help. I say
support your favorite candidate and not a group of candidates for a reason.
Many people support all the candidates and feel that if they post something
about someone they need to post something about everyone. So let's take
posts about someone as a positive thing and not a vote against others. Help
us learn about the people running by sharing what you know about them.
If you support a foundation platform now is a good time for you to tell us
that. Submit your ideas and let candidates comment about your platform
suggestions on-list. The more we can make this an open discussion the
Remember voting starts on March 3rd, 2007.
Thank you everyone for participating!
