The real question on everyone's mind: does Bam tie his kangaroo down?

We don't talk about Rolf anymore... :\ And for what it's worth, I prefer my kangaroos free range. And then medium rare.

But tying them down? Those bros are tooswole.

Thanks to Cap Stable for interviewing me, and for all the good work they do to shine the spotlight on would-be CSM members & inform the community. <3

Also, gotta bwarp my own euphonium: I received an award! I picked up the "Community MVP" award in Noir.'s Black Mark Awards for 2014. http://declarationsofwar.com/dow-90-vegan-minutes-part-i/ @ 17:29. Pretty chuffed!

Hi Bam -

In our occasional chats on Slack or Twitter or seeing the many comments of others, I have no doubt that you will work hard and bring value. That said, my #1 concern about your candidacy (or that of any AUTZ person, frankly) is the ability to deal with near-realtime communication, especially in this faster dev cycle.

I live in the midwest US and play more on Pacific time, and I find the speed of things even on Twitter and Slack during their work day hard to keep up with. How does the Icelandic workday translate to your schedule and what is your plan to make sure you don't end up out of the loop, however unintentionally, if you come on while all the CCPers are asleep?

Hey Rhavas, thanks for your question.

The time difference can be awkward but it's not insurmountable by any means and in fact it has some perks. As it happens the Icelandic work day aligns nicely with the AUTZ evening. By the time I hop on the PC in the evening after work the devs are usually arriving at the office.

In the last two years I've been in regular communication with devs like Guard and Falcon on Skype to discuss matters related to EVE Down Under and I've found the way our timezones overlap to actually be really convenient since I can spend my free time (i.e. when I'd be doing most of my CSM work) talking with them while they're in the office.

I usually have Skype, Slack, Jabber and whatever else I need running on my computer at work as well. I'm pretty much open for business 18 hours a day (contrary to what Nosy Gamer and Random McNally said on Cap Stable's 4th CSM analysis show, I do actually sleep sometimes). I'm writing this reply to you from my office now, in fact.

As for summits - if I weren't invited to attend in person - the sessions usually run from my evening into the very early AM. However, as I've demonstrated by watching every match of the last two ATs and NEOs live I'm clearly not afraid of putting in an all-nighter where internet spaceship matters are concerned.

Bam supported our fledgling Canberra community for our first ever Canberra meetup last year and he is supporting us again for our second meet next month. He provided advertising of the event through the EVE Downunder FB page, in game EDU MOTD, the EDU radio show and some awesome prizes through eve-bet.com for people that turned up.

Bam 4 CSM!

It was such a pleasure to listen to Bam speak about his Eve community work on the hydrostatic podcast I can't recommend that enough. He comes across as such an enterprising guy. Along with the Sugars and the Corbexes, Bam is getting my vote.
