CG Steering Comittee Elections: Part II

Marc van Kreveld has been taking nominations for the next set of members of the CG steering committee. He now has a list of nominees (people nominated at least twice, and willing to serve). His instructions are these:
To vote, send me an e-mail with at most five names from the list below. Put "Vote SC" (or something similar) in the e-mail subject line, or reply to this message. The possibility to vote ends on May 15. Of course, your votes will be kept confidential.
The list is below: much to my embarrassment, I have been nominated. There are many good folks on this list, and I'm not sure explicit campaigning is in good taste, but I will say that I feel the "divide" between CG and the rest of theory has been made too much of a big deal, and does no one any favors. In whatever ways the steering committee can help to keep us involved and participating in larger theory endeavours, I'd do my best to be involved.

If anyone else on the list below wishes to post anything about their suitability for a spot, I'd be happy to host their posting without comment.

And now, here's the list: you will note that all CG bloggers have been nominated :)
