Introduction I'm David Schlesinger (aka "Lefty"), an active and vocal member of the burgeoning mobile open source community. I'm currently chair of the LiMo Foundation's Open Source Committee, and have previously been a member of the their Architecture Council (2006-2008), and Architectural Steering Committee (2008-2010), as well as a member of the GNOME Foundation Advisory Board (2004-2010). I'm also a founding board member of the Open Media Now! Foundation. I've presented, on various occasions, at FOSTEL, GUADEC, Open Source in Mobile, and the Linux Symposium, among a variety of other venues. Nothwithstanding any of that, this blog represents my own opinions, not those of my employer, our customers, or anyone else. As if you couldn't tell.
