Last 5 years I am writing device drivers for living. Writing both Linux drivers and Windows drivers, but mostly proprietary. I occasionally contributed patches to few GPLed projects. Now I am helping linmodems mailing list owners in supporting linux softmodems users. I am also working on project in my spare time.

Looks like I've finished most features Geek Credit (p2p complementary currency) reference code must have.

Now the remaining problems are mostly non technical. I released 2 commercial products already and did few contributions to open source projects, but I did not have an experience of answering open source project design/marketing questions like

2 major questions to address now:

  • I received a lot of letters like "Great idea, will catch on when everybody will use that."

    Sure it is good idea when it is popular. But how to find early adopters/other developers/designers/architects now? The feedback from offline complementary communities is good, but they do not know what GnuPG and Python is, and I won't have a software that aunt Tilly will use before existing system won't become mature. So it's a chicken and egg problem without even the possibility to be backward compatible, as the product is completely new. Hope 2 similar projects that will be released soon will help somehow.

  • The command line is fine and valuable for scripting, but I need better GUI than TKInter I have right now. Which user interface framework to choose? I think I will write the GUI as a Mozilla extension.
Can anyone suggest an idea?
