Since taking a high-level view of things again at the UDS, I am very tempted to run for the GNOME Board this year. Today is the last day for candidates to declare themselves. Apart from the general wish to help out, I’m mostly tempted because it’s a lot of fun and you get to chat with people you respect and hear about stuff you otherwise wouldn’t. They don’t seem like virtuous reasons though. And I’m concerned that I’d hit conflicts of interest because I view several of the Advisory Board companies as potential Openismus clients. So I probably won’t.
