Name:                  Tim Samoff
maemo.org:             timsamoff - http://is.gd/ltBW
Corporate affiliation: wish I knew (none with Maemo)

I'm a veteran graphic/web designer, filmmaker, and musician. I'm also
1/5 of the inaugural Maemo Community Council. During my time on the
Council I've been instrumental in the development of the new maemo.org
website (currently under development), hiring our new (and first)
debmaster, communicating community-relevant issues with Nokia as well as
the greater Maemo Community, organizing the first Maemo Summit, and more.

If you hadn't heard by now, I'm not a developer. I'm a regular Maemo
user who happens to have an eye for design aesthetic and general user
experience. I have been an open source advocate for many years and have
taken part (and have been intimately involved) with several open source
communities over the years. I believe in the current philosophy behind
Maemo (http://is.gd/ltB4), and I am passionate about being a part of the
future possibilities. While my motivation might not be centered around
developing software for this platform, it is centered around the desire
to see our software (first- or third-party) live up to its potential and
compete with other software platforms.

You can find me spouting off about Maemo at the above URL, my blog
(below), Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, and Jaiku -- just Google my name if
you're really curious. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

(And, like our current Council Chair, I also like long walks on the beach.)
