Having spent 2009 establishing a good level of contact and communication between European and American members, as well as learning about the structures and methods of the Eclipse Board and Foundation, I see 2010 as the chance to expand and improve these contacts to pull the European and American communities even closer together.

2009 has also seen Eclipse take steps in the direction of vertical industries. While fully supporting this move, I see myself as a representative of the Eclipse community using and committing to the core technology of the platform, to ensure that the further development of Eclipse profits from the views of both groups.
