LukeChao. Among Hcoop members, I'm not at all special for being a Linux geek, or even for being one of the people who helped to make Abulafia happen in the first place. So, I'll state that if you vote for me, I will press to require new applicants to write an analytical essay on Garrett Hardin's paper "The Tragedy of the Commons." Without checks, rapid expansion could cause catastrophe. That's my platform. LukeChao for 2005!
AdamChlipala. Hello. I put together most of what you see here and do most of the day-to-day management. I reckon I can keep doing that pretty well.
RobGubler. Level headed; will make unbiased decisions. More people should be running for the board...
BrianHolmes. I have an interest in seeing this group grow and develop into a well respected organization. I will always be sure that the decisions I make are well informed and fulfill the needs of HCoop's members. Please view my full statement on my page at BrianHolmes.
NathanKennedy. Since joining in January, I have been active in discussion and support on the list and in #hcoop. I have moved forward the incorporation proceedings, wrote most of the ArticlesOfIncorporation, successfully handled the paperwork for incorporating in Pennsylvania, and have been helping to craft bylaws. If elected I would continue to get tough tasks done and maintain a strong leadership to grow the membership and move the cooperative forward.
JasonSmathers. I have included a detailed statement on my JasonSmathers page. You will see my experience with non profit corporations, corporate procedures, and interaction with the IRS on behalf of non profit corporations. Additionally I have the technical knowledge to help Hcoop, Inc. grow in a smart way.
