I think, personally, its time for a 3rd-party site not related to  
OpenMoko to pick up the slack here. So much stuff happens too quickly  
for people who /should/ be updating the wiki to feel like its  
productive to do so ..

What I would like to see is something like an ""  
website come up that has the following:

- Daily blog news akin to the good ol' slashdot, of news from the  
openmoko scene, gleaned from careful inspection of the mailing lists,  
of IRC, of the codebase, of code delta's, etc.

- Public free Repository of all the latest and greatest 'cool apps'  
found for OpenMoko

- Public forum for discussion of the news.

This is, of course, sorta what we've got with things like (which I check daily), combined with the  
Scaredycat repo's and other such things, but ..  for newcomers .. I  
don't think any of this is as easily approachable as it would be if it  
were all put under a single umbrella that is a bit more of an  
'openmoko pop culture' site than what we've got right now ..
