Red Hat duties
- Current: New Hire Orientation. I've explained "the open source way" to over 1500 new Red Hat employees since 2004.
- Current: Editor of opensource.com/education.
- Community Liaison to the One Laptop Per Child Project, 2008-2009. Examples of work:
- Contributing editor for "Red Hat Magazine", 2004 - 2007. A personal favorite:
- Voice of "Ask Shadowman", Red Hat Magazine, 2004 - 2007. (People still send email missing their Shadowman column.) Some personal favorites:
- Executive director of the Red Hat High program, 2006 - 2007
I was responsible for building the Fedora governance model as it currently exists; the goal has always been to build a structure that empowers non-RH employees to work as effectively in the Fedora community as Red Hat employees do. Results are mixed, but generally positive. :)
Principles I've come to live by:
- If it can't be run effectively by a non-Redhatter, then it shouldn't bear the Fedora name.
- It's okay for the community to be disappointed -- but it's never okay for the community to be surprised.
Stuff I've done:
- Organized the first six FUDCons [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDCon (Fedora User and Developer Conferences)
- Founded the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, February 2005 (originally the Fedora Extras Steering Committee)
- Established the Fedora Documentation Team and appointed Karsten Wade at its head, April 2005
- Established the [Fedora Marketing Team https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-marketing-list/2005-May/msg00008.html] and appointed Colin Charles as its head, May 2005
- Established the Fedora Ambassadors Team and appointed Alex Maier as its head, December 2005
- Built the Fedora Events Schedule, December 2005
Other Governance Experience
- Founding member of Sugar Labs oversight board
- Board Member, ISKME (Institue for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education)
- Council member, IntraHealth Open

Doing my best to track all of these down. It'll take a while. :)
