Which reminds me:

Walter have made ''an audio recording with fragments from talks from 
Wikimania who I believe can be interesting for candidates for the board. 
It is Jimbo and Anthere giving comments about this election, the current 
situation with the board and the future of the board.''

Actually, I somehow lost (?) the software which allowed me to read the 
ogg files, so I heard the second link.

I'll be interested in being recommanded a software to read the ogg file 
(which will be 1) free of charge and 2) for a macintosh).

Greg, can you help ?
