Have you had experiences relevant to the performance of a board or an issue the board should be dealing with, been brave enough to share them, only to have folks think you are trying to show off your knowledge and dismiss your thoughts without even giving you an opportunity for meaningful discussion? How does that make you feel? What if that seems to be happening over and over again - i.e., it's not an isolated incident and you're not the only one treated this way. People who have emotional and social intelligence. They know how to work effectively as part of a team. They treat people with respect, know how to communicate directly and with compassion, and never engage in bullying. Doesn't seem to be the mantra for the Open Source Matters group on JPeople. In spite of of their published purpose which came significantly after (May 9, 2011) the establishment of the group on June 19, 2010, there have been and continue to be poor experiences in trying to establish some kind of communication with OSM on issues where action was promised or on issues where no action has been seen, etc.

Of the seven total board meetings held in 2011 (January through July) by Open Source matters, Inc. (where there are available published minutes) one can see that attendance at board meetings by some individuals doesn't appear to be of overriding importance to either the individual or the rest of the board.

  • Altansukh Tumenjargal has missed 6 of the seven board meetings with available published minutes in 2011. That is a dismal 14% attendance record!
  • Akarawuth Tamrareang has missed 3 of the seven board meetings. That is a 57% attendance record.
  • Javier Gomez has missed 3 of the seven board meetings. That is a 57% attendance record.
  • Philip Locke has missed 3 of the seven board meetings. That is a 57% attendance record.
