Software in the Public Interest (SPI) is currently electing to fill two vacant seats on its board. The dates aren’t shown on the vote pages, but on the email: voting closes at 2009-07-28 23:59:59 UTC (UK residents note: UTC not BST). In other words, if you’re an SPI member, vote now!
Here are my comments on the candidates, for what it’s worth:
- Michael Schultheiss – his platform is very much about current skills more than future plans, but I suspect the accounting skills are enough to get elected to the current SPI;
- Greg Sabino Mullane – yes! A reformer whose platform includes some things I want to see from SPI. A few points suggest he’s not fully aware of the current situation, but that’ll be fixed easily;
- Jonathan McDowell – I’m glad he’s standing, but I’m disappointed by the timid “continue the good work” platform.
So, who would you like to see elected? Who do you think will get elected? What differences do you think we’ll see?
