Nominees who accept their nominations must place their name here, along with any statement or links that they wish to make.

  1. AdamChlipala. I started HCoop, and I'm the current president and treasurer. I develop the custom software that keeps HCoop running, including DomTool and [https://members.hcoop.net/ the portal]. I also get to be the one all the volunteers hate, because I have to poke them when they go radio silent and we're not sure if they're still handling their jobs!

  2. DavorOcelic. I am a current Board of Directors member. For my platform and an overview of my plans for HCoop in the following year, see my Wiki page DavorOcelic.

  3. JustinLeitgeb. I have been an HCoop member since 2005 and I helped out with the process of deciding on a new colocation site for our servers (i.e., the current project at Peer 1). For the platform that I am running on, see the wiki page JustinLeitgeb.

  4. NathanKennedy. I am currently a board member and secretary of HCoop. I've taken care of most of the legal side of HCoop, incorporating it as a nonprofit as well as successfully obtaining recognition from the IRS for HCoop as a tax-exempt cooperative. I have also dealt with Peer1 and handled the physical installation at the Peer1 site. My goals for 2007 include ensuring a smooth transition to our Peer1 site, planning for future growth, and ensuring that the future of HCoop is secure as a cooperative organization. Beyond the transition to our new architecture at Peer1, this includes developing a robust backup and disaster recovery protocol, developing an environmental policy, expanding the board from three to five seats over the next year, and at some point setting a target for hiring staff.
