antanst has accepted the  nomination, and maybe Wesley will volunteer to fill in for EmoneyRu

antanst was on the list anyway and does not need any more nomination.

We texted with BaiMangal earlier today, who declined with the argument that wesley has been much more involved and can do better service for the community.

we will see if we can convince wesley to come on board.

I officially vote in favor of accepting antanst for the vacant TechDev chair.

Lets try to get the others to say the same thing in this thread.

are we sure this is a good idea?  I intentionally ignored offers to committees because I like doing the work Im doin as is and it would in my opinion present a conflict of interest had I been on a comittee and also asked for funds for my work.  Marcus03 just stepped off infracomm, not sure why, but I suspect possibly for same reasons.

I really like wesleyh and his client, but I also think hed be a good fit on the committee as well.  if you pursure this please think of how you intend to prevent even the notion of impropriety

Good point! I still vote for antanst and wesley though. People can always abstain on votes where there might be a potential conflict of interest.

Below is the stance of MC on this issue. They have actually SPENT TIME and WORK on coming to their solution, and the do seem to get some serious stuff done.
[ MC guys - please correct me if I have misrepresented your position below! ]


- Not allowing people in the committees to propose projects (with a different vote ratio than normal proposals) means you actually are penalising  15 talented people for stepping forward and taking action.

   That is neither logical, nor desirable.

 
- the whole stress over voting etc. is completely theoretical and fails to see that we are talking about people and not political science here

   the community just wants action and doesn't care about the whole voting discussion as a rule of thumb


-  we do 4/5 voting for member proposals by the way in MC



-  Let's not forget that if nothing gets done with the Nxt, because we are actually afraid of some criticism those Nxt will be valueless in a few months anyway,

      because we won't have talent anymore and the project will most probably fail :)


-  MC goes with the view that we will do something wrong in someones view anyway


-  might as well be productive while we can

antanst has accepted hi nomination and is an active member of the TD.

however, he wishes to receive a formal 'yes' or 'no' from all members, including abuelau.

hence, we are waiting for a confirmation from abuelau.
