I'd like to announce my candidacy to the OpenStack Technical Committee.

As the Swift PTL, I've been involved in the TC for a while (and the PPB before that and the POC before that). I've seen OpenStack grow the very beginning, and I'm very proud to be a part of it.

As we all know, OpenStack has grown tremendously since it started. Open source, design, development, and community give people the ability to have ownership of their data. These core principles are why I think OpenStack will continue to change how people build and use technology for many years to come.

Of course, principles and ideas don't run in production. Code does. Therefore I think that a very important role of the TC is to ensure that all of the OpenStack projects do work, work well together, and promote the vision of OpenStack to provide ubiquitous cloud infrastructure. 

I believe that OpenStack is a unified project that provides independent OpenStack solutions to hard problems.

I believe that OpenStack needs to clearly define its scope so that it can stay focused on fulfilling its mission.

I believe that OpenStack is good for both public and private clouds, and that the private cloud use case (i.e. deploying OpenStack internally for internal users only) will be the dominant deployment pattern for OpenStack.

If elected, I will continue to promote these goals for the TC. Thank you for your support.
