Gotta love the Android "community" sometimes.

When Cyanogen Inc was first announced, there was a small but vocal group who cried foul. CM was just in it for the money now, and it was only a matter of time before things were going to change. A knee-jerk reaction to be sure, and kinda funny when you see now that they have now open sourced more of their work than ever before, but that initial reaction stuck with some.

I reached out to a few of the other ROM guys from other groups to get their thoughts on things, and I got an amazing reaction from one of them. They said "if anything, it makes us work harder now because we know there's a chance for something like that to happen to us someday."

Fast forward to today, when prominent developers from two other projects are hired by Cyanogen Inc. The response by that same vocal minority? "I guess money talks" and "Cyanogen is buying up all the talent". It's as though these incredibly talented developers couldn't possibly get jobs anywhere else, and CM had their kids hostage or something. It couldn't possibly be that they chose to take part in something willingly because they wanted to, or because they saw potential in a company that was accomplishing a goal that most of these guys have had for years.

Forced narratives are fun and all, but eventually bullshit is just bullshit.

Nice!
We went up to Mt. Baker National forest and cut ours Saturday.  With a permit of course.  BTW it was 11degrees but the sun was out so really nice.  Reminded me of Colorado.  :-)

We want meet other fellow developers, talk shop (or the results of 'The Big Game' if that's your thing), and have fun.

The beers are covered, so stop by if you are in the area.

We did have to slip him a roofie ;)
 
This week I decided to try something new. I went to the +CyanogenMod offices in Seattle and spent some time with the Oppo N1 CM Edition, and learned about the development and support process from the guys who have been working on it. 

Even if you're not interested in the N1 as your personal phone, I think you should take a look at what these guys are doing because they are not slowing down even a little bit after this is officially released.
