I want to run for the Board election. I have very strong
communications skills and am not swamped by hacking. On the board, I
want to help on every single issue that makes progress as smoothly as possible
in a timely manner.
I got motivated reading Federico's Board Member Application Mini-HOWTO.
I believe the following facts collectively make me a productive board
member if elected:
- I'm not a hacker. While I'm learning, I don't see myself addicted
to writing code anytime soon.
- I have actual real free time. I'm a Computer Science student and
have lots of time to spend on things I like to. I /don't/ receive
hundreds of messages from various mailing lists everyday.
- I am /very/ good with paperwork, communications, keeping task on
progress, and getting things done. As an example, I managed to contact
every single GUADEC speaker and collect their bio and photo. (no that's
not as easy as you think it is.)
- I'm passionate about GNOME.
I was introduced to GNOME by way of Persian translation (Yay
gnome-i18n!). I then attended GUADEC in Stuttgart and Vilanova where I
helped with the Printed Program. More recently, I have joined
gnome-love and learning to write perfect code. I also love reporting
