First, the AST has posted a Nominations and Elections Page with a biographical sketch of each speaker.
Second, the candidates for the board (except for Dr. Kaner) will be hosting a live, free town-hall style event on twitter Monday, August 1st 2011, from 9:00PM-10:00PM Eastern USA time. Just ask your question on twitter and use the hashtag #ASTElect.
Any reasonable question is fair game. You may target individuals, but we would prefer general questions that anyone may answer.
Come to twitter. Learn about AST, the candidates, maybe make a more informed vote. Maybe even help us understand, frame, and deal with the issues you think are important in our community.
Only one thing is certain: If you don't show up, we won't know what you'd like to see, or what you care about.

I've done a bit of publishing lately -- first an article on Responsible Bug Reporting and Triage for SoftwareDevelopmentConnection.com.
At the same time, I've been slowly building a series on the skeptics guide to project management; the first four installments are online now.
I hope you enjoy them.
