Hi everyone.

I've decided to throw my hat into the ring for Maemo Community Council. I'm
sure that most of you are familiar with me and what I've done/what I am
doing. For those who are not...

I'm a 30 year old married father of one that has been working in the video
game industry for 4 years this coming Halloween. A lot of my work within
Maemo has mirrored the kind of work that I have ended up doing
professionally: quality assurance, production and... well... all the dirty
jobs no one else seems to want to do. I've applied the skills I've learned
professionally over to Maemo repeatedly, as one can see through the many
bugs I've filed against Maemo and surrounding software as well as recently
spearheading the movement for community involvement with Nokia's translation
teams. We use agile software development at work (SCRUM) just as Nokia and
the council appears to, so I feel that I'll be extremely comfortable within
this environment.

This wouldn't be the first time that I've been involved in leading a
community as I've been involved as a community liason between a company I do
not work for and a community I love. I know what to expect and how things
typically work when trying to interact with commercial entities as a
community member as well as the other way around.

Like you, I love these tablets and I want to do everything possible to not
only keep them alive, but make them a true success. Help me make the most of
this platform.

Thanks for your time,
Jay Carter
