Please don't think I'm limiting anything-- I may speak simply at times
but if I do assume that's just an example.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out the first in my series of use case
scenarios to get just one idea of where I see unexplored value:

  I agree entirely.
  Why limit it to device support though?
  we have a platform that can be custom coded to specification and
  collect/process and transmit data immediately - from the palm of your
  you can take these devices places where laptops are intrusive and you
  can obtain the data required for a business better than any other off
  the shelf piece of hardware.

  i can potentially see thousands of SME businesses benefiting from
  this kind of platform, it just needs a full business team from the
  maemo end :)

    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

    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

    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,
