|My candidate statement||I am continually amazed by the things I see at wikipedia and its sister projects. My first experience with computers was programming simple games using punch tape, and the on an Apple_II_Plus. I got my first email account in 1986 and started poking around on newsgroups, MUDs and the Internet shortly after. I see the wikis as a great example of the possibilities of the Internet to disseminate knowledge and to build civil society.
As a board member, the issues I would focus on issues in three broad areas:
1. Building community
2. Promoting articles that expand knowledge, are accurate and fair
3. Building a strong financial base for the foundation
I have the experience in non-profit management and the technical knowledge to contribute to the wikimedia foundation.
