As a member of a the future board will you look for ways to promote and

part of a funding campaign (be a Friend of GNOME and have a Tomboy
on-line account for free).

I am a big fan of making sure online services are free in the sense of free software.

I pushed hard and encourage where ever possible for Tomboy Online and for Tomboy Online to be hosted by the GNOME Foundation.

I think we can create and host even more free online services.

I think with more users will come more use models. I think we could keep our numbers small and charge for the service - many of us would be willing to pay for free/open services. Or we can find other business models like the basic model is free and you pay for additional features. There are many models to explore, but I think creating the services and getting users is the first step.

I think there is a great need for free and open web services/cloud computing/<insert your favorite name for it here>.
