Engagement on Mobile Devices)

Great news everyone!  The talk on "Enhancing User Engagement on Mobile
Devices" has been accepted for Akademy 2010!  To catch up anyone who may
not be familiar with the goal, this is the effort to bring bug reporting,
application rating, user karma and related feedback-oriented features to
handheld Linux devices.  The Meego-specific project info is on the MeeGo
wiki [1].  A living draft of the whitepaper itself can be found on Google
Docs and is open to editing [2].

For this many people deserve thanks and I hope I can count on them (you)
to help with the final whitepaper and presentation.  Specifically, more
is needed for or from the following:

- Simulation.  It would be useful to have Qt-developed applications that
simulate a device-based bug-reporting tool for the presentation (better
yet, something functional!)

- Project Silk.  This is the KDE project responsible for bringing web
APIs to Linux devices.  No response yet from the project; I am concerned
it may be defunct

- Ovi.  I have reached out to Nokia to see where Ovi's strengths can be
leveraged more, especially in the area of gaming achievements and
ratings.  No response yet.

- Details.  I am unfamiliar with many specifics needed to support this
effort and could sure use help on fleshing out details!

- Presentation.  I am really looking not just for help but for co-authors
and co-presenter(s).  There's a chance that I will not be able to make it
to Akademy 2010 (I will need sponsorship or for American Airlines to let
me use air miles, which is doubtful right now) so it would be extremely
helpful to have a co-presenter who could deliver the talk.

The talk is designed at a fairly high-level but references MeeGo as the
platform of choice.

Akademy 2010 is 3 July to 10 July in Tampere, Finland.  I do not have a
scheduled date for the talk yet but will keep everyone informed.
