Okay folks, this is your chance to become part of the PPCW.Net team because I'm looking for wireless mobile geeks from all over the world :idea:
What I'm looking for in detail are contributors and authors, who shares my passion for Windows CE driven mobile devices but are as wireless minded as me and who wants to contribute news, views and/or reviews about wireless developments from its area of the world.
In fact I'm looking for some people from the US/Canada, Europe, Southeast Asia/Far East and Australia/New Zealand to cover the developments in its area of the world.
If you are interested in becoming a PPCW.Net contributor/author mail me with your ideas, your Wireless Pocket PC and/or Smartphone background or why you are so passionate about mobile devices in general and why you think that you are the right one for this "job" but also what you expect from it.
If you are a wireless geek "only" without a relationship to Windows CE, this might be also fine for me as I also would like to cover the latest wireless developments in your area.
I can't pay you (today) but maybe you are interested in contributing anyway for the "fame, glory and honor"... ;-) :-D
I am interested in contributing. I am an architect by profession but have been in the computer business as well since 1981. I am a firm believer in mobile net and am presently involved in several pertinent endeavors.
I am a partner in Medibayan (www.medibayan.com) which is developing an Internet-based patient record repository with an emphasis on access from Series 60 and Smartphone 2002 phones.
I am also a partner in Xibrix, (www.xibrix.com) which distributes (in the Philippines) mobile net products (@migo Pocket PC, Pretec SD/MMC/CF cards, prepaid cards, mobile phones, etc.)
I am also involved in a start-up that will be developing and providing content for one of the local GSM service providers in the Philippines.
I am presently considering starting a group to develop a 2.5D game for mobile phones. That is, if we can overcome latency, performance and memory issues.
I have owned several PDAs, from the Casio BOSS, to the Sharp Wizard Organizers to the Apple Newton to my own family's firm's Pocket PC that was marketed in the U.S. in the early 90s. It was an 8086-based mini laptop, slightly larger than the Poqet, and had MS Works in ROM.(Unfortunately we never trademarked the name. : ( )
I have some Pocket PCs but stopped using them ever since I got my Nokia 7650 and Smart Amazing Phone (HTC Tanager) which I always carry with me.
I have also installed Wi-fi in most of my offices, as well in my house so that I can further explore the various possibilities with the technology.
I believe in pushing the envelope with the current technology but develop products that are upgradeable as well.
I would like to contribute on a spare time basis as I am not sure I can commit the time. I do not really expect anything in return except for the exchange of ideas. If this is fine with you, then I would be glad to participate.

It's New Zealand, not Zeeland ;-)

@Jim: In German it's “Seeland” but good point, I've changed it - wireless, out of a pub, with my Smartphone which I've also used for this comment...
