Jim Manico is a OWASP Jedi who is part of the ''OWASP Rebel Alliance to Restore the Republic''.
My name is Jim Manico and I've been an active member of OWASP since 2008.
* I am the founder, producer and host of the [[OWASP_Podcast | OWASP Podcast Series]]. As of May 2011 I have published 84 shows and have spent over 500 hours making the OWASP Podcast a reality. I am grateful to my many guests who have made the show a success.
* I am also a contributor and project manager of the [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Enterprise_Security_API ESAPI Project]. I have one of the largest number of individual check-in's for the ESAPI-Java project and work to ease communication between the many volunteers of this project.
* I am also the chair of the [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Connections_Committee OWASP Connections Committee] where I manage the [http://owasp.blogspot.com OWASP Blog], [http://twitter.com/owasp twitter feed] and [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Press press communications] for OWASP. I feel that these activities are directly inline with the OWASP core mission of spreading awareness.
* I am also spearheading several ESAPI-like projects that provide modular single-use controls for ease of use. I have only begun these efforts, but have started to manage the [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Java_Encoder_Project OWASP Encoder ], the OWASP validator and the [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Java_HTML_Sanitizer_Project OWASP HTML Sanitizer] project with a variety of very talented developers.

I included a summary of my "plan for OWASP's future" below:
#Work as a team
##My primary goal as board member would be to stay active and work with the board to build community consensus.
#Continue to advance OWASP code of ethics around financial responsibility.
## [http://manicode.blogspot.com/2011/06/financial-responsibility-and-owasp.html http://manicode.blogspot.com/2011/06/financial-responsibility-and-owasp.html]
##OWASP is a non profit organization. One of the most important responsibilities of a non-profit board is to secure adequate resources for the organization to fulfill its mission. If given the honor and responsibility of becoming a board member, I would use my position to work with grant writers and other resources to secure additional funding for OWASP projects.
#Maintain OWASP values and culture of innovation and vendor neutrality
##Allow low barrier for entry for new projects
##Ensure that all board activities and use of funding is conducted in an open way
##Organization-wide adherence to vendor neutrality
#Create change/maturation driver through funding
##Establish engagement paradigm for commercial / federal grants
##Utilize funding to hire additional full time technical and organizational resources for OWASP
#Facilitate planned “Apache Model” for project measurement, management, and labeling
##Inventory current project and software assets
##High barrier of entry for *production quality* OWASP projects
##Hire additional FTE support staff to manage project infrastructure
#Modernize/Simplify the OWASP Website
##Hire additional FTE support staff to manage and run the OWASP website
##Craft adoption guide
###For common organization archetypes
###For common individual professional roles
