I was complaining to Frank "El Presidente" Warmerdam last week that OSGeo was too opaque and needed to shed a little more blog light on itself. Today is different, with almost every OSGeo-related blogger reporting on the hire of Tyler Mitchell as Executive Director. I've met Tyler. He's a good guy. I think he was one of the last people to let the doomed, brain-dead, MapServer Enterprise/Cheetah notion go, long after it had crashed and burned like the Hindenburg, but I can't hold that against him forever, can I? My only question is: did the board consider anybody from outside the MapServer Foundation cabal?
