Much better, thanks. The only requests I would make now are as follows  
(details I know):

Could you link to the CloudMade wiki article from the first reference  
in the company in your biog.
Could you refer to 'user:steve' as Steve Coast (he is referred to as  
user:steve, user:SteveC and also as Steve Coast on different bits of  
the wiki which is a little confusing to newcomers).
Could you add your nationality to the Election to the board page.

Btw, I notice that some users have details of membership of the  
licensing working group from the election table (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Foundation/AGM09/Election_to_Board 
) however if these are mentioned for some candidates then they should  
be mentioned for all. So... should we mention all working groups that  
candidates  are part of or none? It would be easy enough to add.
