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
tomorrow.

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

Could you confirm your maemo.org username? Could you outline why
you're running and what you'd like to achieve?

There are some additional questions on
http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council/Council_election_May_2012/Candidate_declarations

Thanks in advance,

Andrew

Re: Nomination for community council [In reply to]

My Maemo.org username is NielDK.

Short what I would like to achieve:
Better relationships in the community, between all involved: Beeing
council, normal members, developers and Nokia especially needs to get
better cooperation and assistance with developers.
I believe this is a perfect community, compared to others I have been/are
involved in. Less trolling and hate. Let's keep it that way.

[1]<http://lists.maemo.org/pipermail/maemo-community/2012-April/005055.html>

*1.* What are your thoughts on integrating Harmattan and potentially even
Meltemi/other-open-Qt+Linux Nokia/other manufacturer devices into the Maemo
community and maemo.org?


This community should be open to all Nokia platforms, and should work on
creating better relations with Nokia on all of the platforms, I believe
there is room for all.

*2.* There is a thread on
TMO<http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1187362#post1187362>
highlighting
some of the problems the current council has had. Do you agree with the
assertions in that thread that there's been a breakdown in communication
between Nokia, Nemein and the council; and the council and the community?
If so, how do we fix
it?[2]<http://lists.maemo.org/pipermail/maemo-community/2012-April/005044.html>

Actually I feel the community and council are quite open and accepting, but
surely there is room to improve. Council needs to open ears, and listen to
the community input for improvements or changes.

*3.* Do You agree, that lack of devices (hardware) is one of major
roadblocks for Open mobility we would like to have? If yes, which way
should Council focus on supporting:

Yes, for some devices, like the N950 this is so, creating better
connections with Nokia hopefully can make this better.

a) Cooperation with big companies (Nokia?), hoping that they'll finally
release "device of our dreams" (or thing close to)?

This is needed, and what I will try to accomplish

b) Starting hard, demanding and somewhat costly (without guarantee of
success) path of creating own device via donations, which - if succeed -
may result in totally, or almost totally open device (way of Open Pandora,
Raspberry Pi, etc)?

I think this road is doomed for failure, better connections with Nokia, is
the way to help.

Unfortunately your account isn't elligble to stand, as it only has "karma" of 7:

http://maemo.org/profile/view/nieldk/

According to the Election Process, you must have a karma of 100 or higher:

http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council/Election_process

If you are an active TMO user, have you linked your accounts? This may
make you eligible:

http://wiki.maemo.org/Link_talk.maemo.org_account_with_maemo.org_profile

Hope that helps,

Andrew

Re: Nomination for community council [In reply to]

That is sad,

Still, I will try to provide help, feedback and input to this great
community.

Especially because I have good connections to Nokia that I may take
advantage of to help.

It's a wiki. You can actually add it yourself. :)
