(Thanks to Paul – I just corrected my typos in this post – I did register chumbyme.com, as well as several other variations on the name.Ã‚Â I guess the first time I mispelled Chumby I told my spell checker to add it as “Chumly” and that stuck for the entire post.Ã‚Â My bad.Ã‚Â I should really be more diligent in checking posts, but life is short, and I don’t get paid for this!).
This is (hopefully) a for-profit gig.
I bought the domain chumbyme.com in hopes of building a profitable open source community to extend the Chumby and become a “home” for Chumby owners.
I have a lot of ideas on how to use a web site to integrate with the Chumby to create really useful (not just interesting) streams of data.
Read about Chumby – if you have some skills and interest in helping me develop the idea further, let me know – I am very much into sharing revenue with fanatical fans that can wrap their heads around this idea. This is, I think, a phenomenal idea – open source everything, from the hardware to the firmware, software, and even the “packaging”.
There is a lot of cool stuff we can enable Chumby to do – and hopefully do some of it at a profit. If you are thinking “feed Widgets to Chumby via a web site” you are almost halfway there – that’s the gravy part of my idea – not the gravy train. EVERYONE is doing widgets… we’ll do something even more interesting!
