I’m pleased to announce that Rassami Hok Ljungberg of 2Pears, the organization that puts on the Music 4.5 seminar series, has joined the MetaBrainz Board of directors! Rassami is well connected in the music scene in Europe and has an extensive network of contacts in the music industry. Rassami has already been informally helping spread the word about MusicBrainz and its related projects for the past couple of years. I’m quite pleased that I get to work with her more formally now — welcome Rassami!
Rassami replaces outgoing board member Brian Zisk. Brian has been a board member for over 9 years and has done amazing things to help raise the visibility of MusicBrainz and to generally support our projects. Thank you for all of your support over the last 9 years, Brian!
I find it interesting and lovely that we’re swapping one amazingly connected maven who puts on music conferences for another amazingly connected maven who puts on music conferences. This is a conservation of mavens, while at the same time increasing the diversity of our board of directors.
Win-win! Thank you Brian and Rassami!
