When accepting, please include a statement for why you are running, or a note that one exists elsewhere on the wiki
I, Lenore Ramm, accept my nomination for the board. I am selfishly accepting this nomination, because I hope I will learn a great deal in the position. I also hope to contribute to hcoop, an organization in which I believe strongly. I am also on the board of the Durham Coop Market and have previously served on the boards of SplatSpace (Durham's Makerspace) and the Durham FM Association. I studied computer science at Duke, and am currently working for Duke's central IT organization, on the Identity Management team. I really like cheese.
I, Kevin Everets, accept my nomination for the board in a similar fashion to Lenore Ramm (and thank her profusely for taking the lead on doing so). I'm also looking forward to contributing however I can to hcoop. Though I currently sit on no other boards, I'm a professional software developer and amateur Free Software advocate (and occasional contributor). My hope is to espouse the virtues of community hosted services and I will endeavour to provide timely responses to the needs of the membership. I also hope to explore ways of extending the functionality of hcoop (via domtool where possible) to provide distributed and federated software alternatives in an easy and accessible manner.
RobinTempleton accepts their nomination
