So I might step forward then.

My introduction:

Hi, I am juiceme and I am running for Maemo Community Council.
I have been part of the community here for relatively short time, just 
17 months. That is not a long time in a human life but surely enough to 
fit into a community centered around common interests.

My spark into joining maemo.org came when I purchased a N9 device, my 
first linux-based mobile phone. Previously I had owned Symbian devices 
since early nineties but I never did any SWDEV on those as my interests 
were on big iron. N9 was the first small embedded device that had the 
same tools I was used to working with so naturally I was delighted on 
the possibilities it offered.

I have degrees in EE & ME, and some university courses in Math before 
dropping out due to having not enough time to do family/work/university 
simultaneously :)
My current occupation is SW development for Telecommunication Systems, 
and I have previously done RF design, HW design and Test System design 
in previous jobs. I have worked in this industry for about 2 decades.
My passion is Free Software, Libre software even, and I am known to be 
fairly vocal FS advocate on my workplace. I use exclusively Linux/Unix 
variants in my work and on my own time, and am known for pestering 
people to drop proprietary/legacy OS'es and switch to Linux.

My SW skills include c, python, test automation and tool creation. I 
like kernel work and prefer to use console over any GUI's.
