Hi folks, since the Council is for non-developers as well as our
wonderful devels, I'll throw my hat into the ring as well. I've been
using Kubuntu for many years, and promote it all the time, especially
at LinuxFest Northwest, and sometimes OSCON.

I'd love to be a non-technical voice on the Council.

I blog as Linuxgrandma, which you can read on both Planet Ubuntu, and
KDEplanet. My ubuntu wiki page:

Thank you for your consideration,
