Dear friends,

I would like to announce my candidacy for a Board of Directors seat at
The Document Foundation.

I am Jesús Corrius, 32 years old. I live in Barcelona, Spain. I have a
degree in Audiovisual Communication (Cinema major) for the Universitat
Autònoma de Barcelona and another one in Software Engineering for the
Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. I also studied at the Universities of
Valencia and Vilnius. I am currently teaching Software Development in
a Free / Open Source environment in an International Master for
students in Spain and South America. I am also currently working as a
freelance software developer for  the largest telecommunications
company in Asia, and the second-largest in the world. I am a member of
the association Softcatalà, that promotes the use of the Catalan
language in computers and Internet and I have been involved in the
translation of many projects to Catalan like GNOME, Mozilla and, of
course, and LibreOffice. I am also a proud owner of a
plastic rooster named Papuga, which has become an unofficial mascot of
the LibreOffice Project.

I was involved in the project for 10 years, as Catalan
was the first non Sun translation included in OpenOffice. At the time
Softcatalà was hired by Sun Microsystems Spain to work in the
translations and provide full localized builds for Linux, Windows and
Solaris. My work started many months before OOo 1.0 was officially
released. During all those years I did many different works,
including: translations, customized builds, representing the project
in conferences, marketing, working in the cross-compilation, fixing
the Windows build, teaching Catalan to Fridrich, and organizing the Conference in Barcelona in 2007. I also was on the
founders of TDF and the LibreOffice project.

I can wear many hats and I think I can help The Document Foundations
in many areas, from engineering to community development. I strongly
believe in the project and its community.

But, please, vote for the others, they are all a lot better than me! :)
