A couple of weeks ago I returned from the first maemo.org summit.
At that summit a number of very special things occured.
I met up with people I had only spoken to online and drank lots of beer, and secondly my software was recognised.
I was able to show my vision for touch based devices and I was bowled over by the reaction.
I have been writing a piece of software for the last few months now, called liqbase - its designed to make the most out of a touch device and actually put control back at your fingertips.
Its still just a hack, there is no polish and it needs a lot of work, but its out there.
The Nokia Internet Tablets run a variant of linux called maemo, with a thriving community at the maemo.org site we code and hack our devices because we can.
I didn't wait for anyone else to fix it for me, I didn't wait for next gen hardware, I made the most out of what I had and went ahead and tried myself and am more than happy with the results so far.
Its been a long hard slog this year, I've hacked and cursed and laughed and cried along with my friends, but I've managed to do something which works like a touch screen is meant to.
I want to take it further, Nokia wants me to take it further, maybe, just maybe we can manage it.
