I know that we should only nominate 2 candidates for the ambassador
awards, but seeing that actually there aren't many candidates I would
like to recommend JoergSimon.
JoergSimon is a german ambassador. He helped me a lot organising
FOSDEM and I don't have words to numerate all the good points he
showed for being a real ambassador.
One of his best acts was helping in engaging serious talks with other
Fedora European Ambassadors. Compared to North America, here in
Europe, each country has its own language. And it's hard to
communicate to someone when it's not your language and english is not
the language of both parties.
Initially, this barrier formed peer groups(french groups and others).
Since JoergSimon(only one who didn't understand french in the room)
assisted the Fedora French presentation of ThomasCanniot which ended
to be entirely in French , however he engaged himself in breaking that
barrier. We have now a group of european ambassadors more open and
I see this as a start for europe, but also this showed that having
such meetings in real life ends in good relations, especially for the
The last FAD is a very good example and the result was this FOSDEM
event(Hatrick #1), hence the above communication. I think Max and
those present would agree with me.
PS: I see my name is listed as a candidate for the award.If JörgSimon
can't be one and if ever I'll be awarded, I would like you to award
him in my place.
