That's fantastic!  It's an amazing roster and I look forward to seeing what comes of it and helping out however you need.  

One of the things that I took away from the LODLAM Summit last week is the opportunity and responsibility we have to continue to grow our leadership to be truly global and work to incorporate Africa, Asia and South America in particular.  We'll be looking carefully at that from the LODLAM side of things and welcome any thoughts as well.

Rock on,
Jon Voss
