As the Symbian Foundation is changing to a licensing organisation with no staff, I am moving on. I will start a new role as open source community manager for XEN.ORG in mid January. I am looking forward to this exciting opportunity and many of the different and new challenges ahead.
For me this also means a departure from mobile computing and venturing into cloud computing and virtualization. I will stay however on the board of Symbian DevCo and help see it through the difficult times the transition of the Symbian Foundation has caused.
With regards to this blog: it will continue as its focus is on sharing open source and community building stories. When we set up this blog, the intention was to use it as a collaborative hub for sharing and learning about community building problems. All of the initial contributors have worked for the Symbian Foundation; so it remains to be seen whether the blog will become truly collaborative or whether it will morph into my personal blog.
In any case: if you have a good community building story or need help writing such a story, get in touch.
