If you're thinking, even a little bit, about nominating yourself for  
Secretary, let me give you my take.

It's been an honor -- and even a pleasure -- to serve in the special  
role of Secretary for these last few months.  If you care about the  
openness and the quality of the process Kantara has established, this  
role gives you a portion of the direct responsibility for its care and  
feeding, which is kind of cool.

The role does require a certain, shall we say, detail orientation :-),  
but lots of us have that.  And the leadership team as a whole has  
gotten the "recording" part of this job into a regular rhythm by now,  
so you don't have to come up with a lot of new process unless there  
are improvements you'd like to make.

Most of the bootstrapping work is now over, but there is still  
interesting work ahead.  So please consider nominating yourself.  And  
definitely ping me if you have any questions.
