As per the 7 essential questions, we should start to suggest temporary moderators for the site.
There will be a more formal election process later on, but I think that the site could really use some temporary moderators at this point to regulate some of the soft questions, etc. Moderators have access to tools to merge questions, close/lock questions, remove spam users, etc.
Please nominate one person per answer, including links to their main page and meta page (meta contribution is also really important). The nominee should feel free to add more details, including whether they are willing to do the job.
Just to add, Jeff Atwood posted a great "Theory of Moderation" post in the past, which sums up their view of what makes a good moderator. Please feel free to provide other suggestions for what makes a good moderator in the comments (sorry...I would make this CW, but I can't after the fact and am not a moderator yet...will ask one of the StackExchange folks to do it for me).
