I work on the Fedora DocsProject as a writer, editor, and rabble-rouser. In 2007, someone in Raleigh, NC fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally approved me as an ''appointed'' [[Board| Fedora Project Board]]  member.  I'm happy about this; I'm not the only one who falls asleep on his keyboard and makes mistakes.

One of the biggest rabbles that I rouse and wrangle is the DocsProject/SteeringCommittee.  I think they call this job "the Chair" because of all the sitting you do.  As luck would have it, I was recently (re)elected to the committee in our first ever elections, and was then (re)annointed by the committee as Chair.  ''However'', it is well understood that I am serving only one more, six-month term.  It is time to bring in new blood to lead this project, and to let me i) sit on my laurels instead of getting burned out, and ii) actually do some  technical writing for Fedora.  '''Update 2008-03-28:''' [[JohnBabich| John "Lucky One-Eye" Babich]]  has taken on the vice-chair mantle, making him successor in line six months later.
