[maemo-community] Minutes of web design meeting, 13/1/2009

My original idea of talk.maemo.org was just to continue the 'talk'
naming tradition of internet tablet talk. Anyway, it's a good to think
through how we want to call it. "Maemo Talk", "Maemo Forum" or something
else and then match the subdomain accordingly. I think Reggie deserves
to be carefully heard about this one. 

I see 'Maemo talk' as the true bridge between users (landing to
maemo.nokia.com) and developers (landing maemo.org) and Nokia people.
It's design should mix elements from maemo.org and maemo.nokia.com and
for those landing first to 'Maemo talk', it should show that to learn
more about the maemo experience go to maemo.nokia.com or to start
participating in the development go to maemo.org.

I will promote 'Maemo Talk' heavily on maemo.nokia.com so that there's a
place where newbies/users can discuss features and ask questions and so
forth. So up until that point it's ok still to say "use google" or "this
has been already discussed in another thread, use the search foo!" but
not after, please ;-)
