	Thanks for adding yourself to the wiki... I was going to take on
that responsibility, but it sure is nice when people are responsible
for themselves! ;)

 I've been interested in Maemo devices since about mid-2005, and
 bought a 770 the day the went on sale. Since then, I've been
 increasingly involved in the community - both on
 InternetTabletTalk and, increasingly, maemo.org.
 I believe Nokia have yet to fully tap into the community that
 exists, and the community needs to help Nokia grow membership
 and activity within the Maemo ecosystem.
 I want to push for Nokia to do more and more Maemo development
 in the open, with them *truly* having to justify why a
 component is closed. I want to have the community contribute
 more directly to the development process, whether in roadmapping;
 specification writing/review or testing of pre-released products.
 The maemo.org community is growing: we need to ensure it keeps
 growing. I'm pleased to see that, already, some of the points I
 raised in "maemo.org: what next?"[1] are coming about. I want
 to see the Council pushing this agenda to increase the level of
 dialogue happening at the Maemo *strategic* level between Nokia
 - as its corporate sponsor - and the maemo.org community - as the
 passionate, experienced, but currently undirected, community that
 it is.
