Hi ownCloud!

Dear ownCloud community!
As you might have read on the ownCloud Inc. blog by Frank, I'll be joining ownCloud Inc. as community manager tomorrow. Like in my previous gig at SUSE, I consider the 'manager' part of the title to be about helping out the community wherever I can. To put it less graphically than Frank did: you get another person to talk to when you think we can improve things.

I'm excited to get started and find out what should be done. Of course I have thoughts and ideas on that but I am not the type to have a strong opinion before I know what is going on and have heard a bunch of opinions about it. And although I've been around ownCloud a fair bit, having written and talked about it, used it and knowing many of you, I intend to take my time to get to know you all better. Of course, marketing is my thing, so I'm sure to be around in that area, helping spread the word on what ownCloud is doing and why it matters.

Opinions, ideas and introductions are very welcome! I'm around on most social media but most actively on G+ and of course you can email me, ping me IRC and so on.

I really look forward to getting my head in the clouds with you all!
