[maemo-community] Nomination for Community Council

Hi All,

I nominate myself for the Maemo Community Council.

I finally have something approaching employment security; this is something
I have not enjoyed for the past year. I will be able to devote some time to
this for the next few months.

I am quite upset that there's not more people nominating themselves. I think
now, more than ever, we need a council to remind Nokia that there's still a
vibrant community around the platform they've abandoned. For heaven's sake,
there's still users of the N800 (me included) out there!

More than ever, we need some big mouths to keep yapping at Nokia that we're
around and there's still good reasons to keep supporting the Maemo
infrastructure. And actually, now that Nokia has clawed back a big chunk of
the Linux team's budget, I think they can't afford to ignore us; the Maemo
community's ridiculous devotion to a mostly-abandoned, niche platform is one
of the Nokia MeeGo team's biggest assets. We're the envy of Linux
communities everywhere, if for nothing else than our pitbull-like inability
to let go of something that we really like.

I hope that, at best, I will stir others to step forward. Something like,
"If even Qole can do it for another term, then so can I!"

At worst, there will be a stampede of candidates attempting to flood the
list to avoid letting me be on the council again.

But seriously. I want to see a full roster of candidates by this time

Or else I'll be Very Disappointed in you all. Very Disappointed.

and imaginative person."
