I’ll try to be more than a zero ;-)
To quote what I said last year -
"Most of you already know me; for those that don't - I've been Smalltalking since 1984, developing VMs since 1986, developing Squeak since 1996. I'm old, cranky, reasonably smart, know where most of the bodies are buried (because I buried a lot of them), and in favour of simplicity where possible and brute force everywhere else. I have a long history with ARM cpus and RISC OS, which is why I'm currently working to get Squeak back up to date on the Raspberry Pi platform. “
To that I should add that I’ve spent the last year speeding up Scratch on the Raspberry Pi, improving low-level texty stuff in Squeak, reworking tutorial pages on the swiki and trying to get some Mantis bug reports moving around.
My primary interest relating to the board is making sure that we keep the legal and financial aspects quietly under control, and getting our web presence updated and simplified - but since I am not any sort of expert web developer that really means whipping others into action.
So vote for me; because it’s good for you.
