In 2010 we will have the second vote for a GA Fellowship seat. Julia Klein and Björn Schießle are candidating for the seat.
Julia migrated to GNU/Linux in 2006 and became aware of Free Software. Then she decided to get involved and support this concept by informing other people about it. So she joined the fellowship in 2008.
She started booth volunteering staffing booths on CeBIT, FrOSCon and OpenRheinRuhr. In doing so she likes to bring the concept of Free Software to people in and outside ITC and she tries to show them what the fellowship is all about.
If Julia should be elected as the second Fellowship representative in the General Assembly she likes to make FSFE's structure and projects more transparent to Fellows. So they can make use of their say in the General Assembley more easily. She likes to bring more ideas and critical thoughts expressed by Fellows into the GA.
Björn joined the Fellowship in 2005. At the same time he started to work as an volunteer in the translation team. In 2006 he participated at the first international Fellowship meeting in Bolzano, Italy.
At the end of 2006 Björn became a member of the German team of FSFE. Since then he participated at various trade shows and organised booths for FSFE. In 2008 he started a Fellowship Group in Stuttgart. Björn also gave some speeches about Free Software at various events. Today he is the coordinator of the German translation team and a member of the european core team of FSFE.
If he should be elected as the second Fellow representing the Fellowship in FSFE's general assembly together with Torsten Grote he would try to give the Fellows more influence into the decision making process of FSFE and make the processes as transparent as possible to the Fellows. To achieve this Björn will be available for discussions with the Fellows and will try to bring their ideas, requests and concerns into the GA.
