Hello beloved community of open souce developers and hackers,

It's funny to think that I've been laying low in such a way that many
people within the Maemo Community might not know me. For my absence, I
apologize -- although, my absence has not been without just cause. In
any case, I feel like my life is coming back into a place where I might
be able to lend a hand -- and a voice -- in much more of a deliberate

That being said, I would like to nominate myself (again) for this
esteemed position within our amazing community of software rebels...
Even so, this is not to say that I wouldn't like some of the newer blood
to demolish me in the elections. But, for that to happen, we need the
newer blood to nominate themselves -- or nominate others -- and make
this an important election... Not just one that was left by the wayside.

These are important times for our community. Not only are we on the
verge of another community conference, but the community dynamic and
infrastructure is about to take a dramatic shift. With the advent of
Meego, we, as a community, must forge a path in which the community
(members new and old) have a say in the future of our development
framework and operating system. Enough said.

I am not going to make my nomination a history of what I have
contributed to the community. There are plenty of forum threads, blog
posts, etc. to prove my worth. But, this is the forum, I think, to
stress the importance of having a Community Council and of remaining
diligent in expressing out beliefs, our ideals, and our desires to Nokia
and Intel.

We are the voice. That's what Maemo was built upon. Don't let laziness,
shyness, or some sort of self-imposed form of self-motivation get in
your way.

This is my self-nomination. But, I'm an old hand. Nominate yourself and
become a pivotal force in Maemo and Meego.

Tim Samoff
