>how many of them happen to be attorneys ( in which state, country ) and
where do they currently work ??

To the best of my knowledge:

Mitchell Baker, Mozilla, attorney 
John Cowan, Reuters, not attorney
Damien Eastwood, Sun Microsystems, attorney
Brian Geurts, Nasa, attorney
Rishab Aiyer Ghosh, OSI board member, formerly India, now Netherlands,
not attorney
Laura Majerus, Fenwick & West, attorney
Russ Nelson, OSI Board member, not attorney
Karna Nisewaner, IBM, attorney
Diane Peters, OSDL, attorney
Eric Raymond, OSI observer (not board member), not attorney
Cliff Schmidt, Apache, not attorney
McCoy Smith, Intel, attorney
Sanjiva Weerawarana, OSI Board member and Apache, Sri Lanka, not

The bios of the OSI board members (and Eric and me) are at:

Don't have bios for the other members, but that's a good idea, and I'll
try to get them up pretty soon.  I do know that some of them can be
found by googling but I'd want to ask before posting URLs of their
personal pages.

This might be a good time to say again that committee members have
agreed not to cast deciding votes on licenses for which they or their
companies are stewards. (For example, McCoy couldn't vote on the Intel
Open Source License if he hadn't already voluntarily moved it to the
non-recommended tier).
