hereby, I'd like to announce my candidacy for a Board of Directors seat at The Document Foundation. Following-up the post to, I'd like to give some more details and background about myself, and am happy to answer any questions you may have.

My name is Florian Effenberger, am 28 years of age, and I live in the very south of Germany, in the beautiful Allgäu, 100 km southwest of of Munich. I have been with TDF from the very beginning, serving in the Steering Committee, and mostly responsible for marketing and infrastructure, a field of activity where I also would like to contribute in the future. Previously, I have been involved with for seven years, for a long time being the marketing contact for Germany, and in the end the lead of the international marketing project and the distribution project.

I am also in the Board of Directors of the German association "Freies Office Deutschland e.V." (translated "Free Office Germany association", previously Deutschland e.V.), an entity set-up to organize and arrange local events and activities, where I have been serving since April 2008. FrODeV is also the interim legal entity for TDF.

In my "real life", so to say, I am in the process of finishing my studies and -- you may have guessed it given the long e-mails I usually write :) -- work part-time as a freelancer for marketing and as a freelance journalist, so I have no corporate affiliation at the moment.

My main motivation for the candidacy is to ensure the daily operation of the future Foundation, to provide a stable and secure framework not only for our worldwide community, but also giving safety and confidence to our corporate and private users around the globe.

So, now it's your turn -- I am happy to answer any questions that may occur. ;-)
