1) This is complex as Luke's coordinating the election as I understand
it, but I want to make sure he's given a fair/open/transparent shot
(without conflict of interest) should he decide to run for office
himself, as I (*) strongly believe he should.
Not sure his own opinion of course, but there has been no more stellar
OLPC/Sugar volunteer over the past 3 years, conscientiously supporting
learners worldwide at almost every level, including fixing their
hardware, ethically running a business -- and perhaps most important
resolving disputes peaceably, and diplomatically.
I gather the guy's still in high school too and busy applying to
universities, which might also an issue I suppose, Luke? :)
2) I just created the page
encourage more candidates to run, and could easily add 5 others to the
list-of-the-willing, but please if folks could help take this very
seriously editing that (without too many write-in candidates ;) as I
don't want to be the only one!!!
3) Everyone please remember to email members at sugarlabs.org by Oct 1 if
you want to vote in Sugar Labs' annual election, which you SHOULD do if
you are participating in our effort -- remember there's a $20 fine in
Australia if you don't vote -- and yes Please be as vain^h^h^h^hproud as
possible including a list of your Learning/Sugar-related contributions
in the email :)
