After several people have asked me to, I've decided to stand for 
re-election. I'll be posting a manifesto with more details, but, aside 
from the feedback I got, some of the main reasons were

- Diversity
- Only having two candidates
- Although I use OSM in my work, it's different than the other board 
members. The companies who I contract with tend to be in different 
areas, so my conflicts of interests tend to not be the ones that other 
board members have.
