At the end of the last minute of January 8th, the W3C will close its polls and we will have a new W3C Technical Architecture Group (#TAG).  The TAG can act as a sort of steering committee for the #W3C.  Only W3C member organizations get to officially cast a vote, but two years ago, average developers helped make some noise and let them know we wanted change.  In the process, we filled 4 of the 9 seats with reform candidates who helped lay out a vision.  

This time, we're trying to keep the change going and refine rather than turn the ship, but I think it will take just the right mix of people to get the most out of it, and that's why I'm publicly noting that I support +yan zhu  (we need a security expert who also understands the Extensible Web vision), Travis Leithead who keeps a TC-39 liason and brings his excellent work/insight with Microsoft to the table, +Mark Nottingham  brings an IETF liaison and expertise protocols and, of course, +Alex Russell who was one of the original movers who helped get this movement/vision started.

If you work for a member organization or know someone who does (see this list http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List), I'm asking that you reach out to them and help get one or all of these folks elected.  If you don't, but you belive in the message, just pass it on - chances are pretty good that we'll get the message there somehow if history is any indication - it matters.

What voting method does it use? Presumably something insane like at-large plurality voting.
