Thank you, Stefan.

Being from Norway, I am also from one of the developing nations of the TYPO3 world. I know how hard it can be to sell an unknown CMS and break through the marketing fluff created by closed-source and proprietary content management systems.

TYPO3 needs more than good code and a strong feature set to grow internationally. It all starts with people.

That is one of the reasons why I have focussed my work in the board not only on improving the Association’s communication through contribution, but also supporting empowerment and building community: making people feel a part of something positive and good for the world, but also feeling appreciated—no matter the size of the contribution.

There is still a lot to be done, and I hope I will be allowed to continue this mission for TYPO3.
