[rpd] Board Election 2017: Final Candidate Slate

Interesting...academic papers, technical capabilities?
All nice and good to have.
But remember board positions are LEADERSHIP rather than academic or technical positions. 
Asking candidates to provide for example 3 published papers in refereed journals or certifications in Cisco, Unix or Security may miss the point since you are not hiring an 'EMPLOYEE'. In other words, having academic publications is good but not a reliable predictor of an effective board member.

I am particularly interested in the work accomplished & contribution to
community by the candidates. That being said, I'd like to read the
papers, authored or co-authored, by candidates.

IMHO a curriculum vitae is not much a metric to measure technical
