(a) demonstrate independence in thought, leadership, and business
[/QUOTE]
To start this network and see it as something that was necessary in the world years before the concept of applying blockchain to business was common required independence in thought, leadership, and business.

(b) be of good moral character with a demonstrated interest in the long term best interests of the protocol, willingness to serve the community of users, and history as a leader in the community.
[/QUOTE]
I have served as a Guide since the inception of the position because I am dedicated to the long term success and health of the network.

(a) make themselves available to the community
[/QUOTE]
I dedicate time weekly to be available to the community on Discord.

(b) Maintain orderly operation of the protocol network and facilitate the relationships between standing parties and the community. Further, by ensuring an adequate number of applicants to run a large enough pool of servers to ensure 65 servers are always available for the Authority Set.

Finally I see the responsibility of “Maintain orderly operation of the protocol” to extend beyond simply the technical and governance parts of the protocol and extending towards the wider community. Do you agree with this interpretation? If so how do you intend to achieve this?

We as a community are growing into the 65 number from a social as well as a technological capacity. I think you are asking if Guides should serve also in the capacity of a Discord moderator or something along those lines. While moderation is valueable and needed in the community, that seems beyond the scope of the guide position. The guide position should eventually have a minimal role in governance and standing parties should eventually operate more independently as the guide role diminishes.

(c) Be responsible for overseeing the application of the protocol governance to the operation of the the protocol.
[/QUOTE]
I hope that my actions over the past year as a guide have demonstrated responsibility in this capacity.

[QUOTE="DanG, post: 13019, member: 50"]
As a guide up for reelection could you also please touch on how you have accomplished any of the elements listed above and how you intend too moving forward.

Over the past year, the Factom network has grown from just Factom, Inc running the Federated servers to include 24 additional parties. The next year is scheduled to expand that set even more. As the number of people running and participating in the network increases it will increase the value of the network. As a Guide, I will continue to support the network as it grows and becomes a system that multiple industries will rely on.
