Thanks Mitch,

I would like to add that I want to make this a forum not just for rooting
phones or developing software, but also for making our android phones tools
of productivity.

I would be delighted if people with Android phones who had no desire to
break their TOS would come to learn from us what tools are available to
make their day to day life easier.  People who just want to maximize their
use of email, who want to control their sound system at home with their
phone, who want to know the merits of "ALL THE DAMNED TWITTER APPS,

I'd also like to see gamers there.  Our phones put the Nintendo DS to
shame.  What does android gaming mean?

I'd also like developers there interested in how to make their software
better for the community.

I'd also like to the politically minded come and talk about using our
ubiquitous computing power for good and change in the world.  I have 3GHz
in my pocket, with great heat dissipation comes great responsibility.
