[maemo-community] A business case for Maemo

I started thinking about this before the Summit and it really gelled for me in Amsterdam, sharing excitement and energy with everyone there:

There are so many unemployed and underemployed people in this community, and so much potential with Maemo.  Maybe it's time at least some of us consider creating a global, virtual cooperative with common goals and find some way to make a living at what we enjoy.

While at Nokia I found myself driving to work every day (especially at the factory) thinking "I can't wait to get to work and get back on the project waiting for me there!".  As crazy as it sounds, I was constantly engaged while employed with them and despitre the occasional frustrations really, really loved working there.

My current job inspires no such excitement... but being around you guys and experiencing the thrill of discovery with the N900 made me realize THAT is where I want to be.

So... am I the only one thinking like this?  Is it "wrong" to want to wrap a career around Maemo device support?  And if it isn't, what value could a potential virtual team provide?

Just looking to brainstorm for now,
