The association was derived through googling "site:owasp.org [person's
full name]" since their claim is that you don't need to be a paid
member to contribute.

Thorsten was actually someone who I thought was associated with OWASP
(due to his relationship with Achim) but has never had any
correspondence with OWASP (unless it is under a handle that I am
unaware of).

I also tend to focus on individual contribution rather than their
employer but nevertheless this should be also considered another
factor to minimize voter bias.

There is actually one person I would consider independent of both WASC
and OWASP but is still involved with the WAF field is Ivan Ristić.
