Thread-topic: New Xen.org Community Manager

I'm pleased and excited to announce that Lars Kurth will be joining Xen.org as 
the new Community Manager. We were fortunate to have a number of very strong 
applicants for the post, and it's been a long process with many meetings 
involving lots of folk in the community. Through all the interviews, everyone 
was very enthusiastic about Lars, and it's great that we've been able to 
appoint him. Lars has lots of experience helping to organize and promote open 
source communities, and I'm sure we'll benefit greatly from that experience.  
I've appended a brief introduction from Lars, who will be starting in 

Many thanks to everyone that helped with the interviews and suggested 


Hi, my name is Lars Kurth and I am looking forward to be the new community 
manager for Xen.org. In the last 9 years I have worked with various open source 
communities (Symbian, Symbian DevCo, Eclipse, GNU) and have developed a great 
passion for working in or with open source communites. My career has been quite 
diverse, covering roles such as community manager for Symbian, product manager, 
chief architect, engineering manager and software developer. This enabled me to 
learn to solve and understand many different business and community problems: 
such as building and leading virtual engineering teams, planning and executing 
change programs impacting 1000+ users and developing marketing and 
communications programs. I have mostly worked on different aspects of tooling 
and development infrastructure for silicon and mobile vendors helping 
developers be more effective.  In any case, I don't want to bore you too much: 
if you want to know more check out my LinkedIn profile on 

Personally, I have a wide range of interests such as literature, theatre, 
cinema, cooking and gardening. I am particularly fascinated by orchids and 
carnivorous plants and has built a rather large collection of plants from all 
over the world which I grow in a small greenhouse. My love for plants extends 
into a passion for travel: I emjoy travelling to exotic places to see plants 
grow in their native habitats.

I won't start at Xen.org for a few weeks. If you see me on-line on
