I'll run. I'm running on the not-a-cabbage ticket.
In recent times I had a financial crisis, but it's really looking like I'm out of the woods now. I'd be glad to volunteer if the people of Squeak would have me, and I do believe that right now I'm in a position to focus a good deal of time on the Squeak community. Last time, I probably would have been swept up in day to day survival stuff, but that's not the situation now.
My interests currently include leveraging improvements made to Morphic in Cuis, and figuring how we're going to use Spoon to explore and extract them. I'd also like to do what I can to support and/or continue the work Frank Shearar has done with both disentangling dependencies and maintaining a continuous integration infrastructure.
You should really consider the other contenders, though, because I'm quite sure that all of them will be great candidates.
