BarCamp Melbourne takes place in just 10 days. Creative Contingencies has thrown some coins in the hat to sponsor the event and help ensure it's free for attendees. Would-be BarCampers do have to pay $10 up front to secure their place, as spots are limited. Too often, people sign up, but don't show up. A small financial commitment seems to work to reduce the number of no-shows. If attendees do turn up, they get a refund, or the option to donate their fee to a carbon offset scheme.

I'm running for election as an "At Large" board member of the Drupal Association.
"Meet the candidates" forums were scheduled so members of the Drupal community could ask questions of the nominees. We were all asked to do a brief introduction, then respond to questions either by voice, or by IRC, and then were all asked to make a final statement.
Rather than adding to the already lengthy wiki summary of the candidate meetings, I'm posting the edited version of my responses here instead. See the full IRC transcript, and others summaries here:
