The main reason I want to be on the board is so I can have a voice for all of the sites that use the livejournal GPL source code to run their own sites. Right now we don't have much of a voice nor do we have any input into the direction the code has taken.
I run what is now the largest and busiest site that runs the LiveJournal codebase, InsaneJournal.com. I have been using the code longer than I have had this journal. InsaneJournal has been open since October, 2001. I have also help support a number of other LJ "Clones" with various issues they have had.
Since LiveJournal was founded on the base of Open Source Software, and since the code is licensed under the GPL, I really think that all sites that run this code truly do need a voice and I personally think that I am the voice they need.
It appears that I already have the 100 comments necessary for nomination, but please keep commenting your support (only once per user please). That way even if I don't with the general electtion, at least LJ will see that it's users also want support for sites outside of LJ that use it's codebase. And that the FOSS (Free Open Source Software) movement is still alive and well!
