Hello,

I have been hesitant to write to this list about the board election for
fear of appearing to be  overly self promoting.  But I believe in the
importance of what I stand for:  *bridging the gap between developers and
OWASP.  If you think this is an important priority for OWASP, consider
voting for me, Matt Konda, in the Board Election.*

The short version of my platform is that we won't see developers stop
introducing widespread known flaws like SQL Injection and XSS until we work
*with* them to frame the solution and communicate effectively.  Developers
should be members, wiki contributors and tool collaborators.  Chapters
should have strategies for reaching developer communities.  Developers
should be speakers.  Conferences should have pure software company
sponsors.  And so on...

OWASP is an awesome organization, let's look forward and make it more
awesome for developers.

I have written more to articulate my positions in the following:
1.  Announcement:  http://www.jemurai.com/owasp-board-candidacy.html
2.  Prep for Board Interview:

Thank you,
Matt Konda
