I was reading one of Rod Whitby comments over at WOR and it got me thinking. Rod and a few others have invested tons and tons of time into WebOS. They are the main reason for homebrew. They help make WebOS one of the greatest Mobile OS. I have always had the utmost respect for Rod and the WebOS Internals Group. Rod has always wanted the best for this community and this OS and has always stuck to the values of opensource and high morality. He is a great source of knowledge and most of the time when he makes comment or leaves messages they are only based on the information. Very rarely have I ever seen Rod give his option.
This is a very important time for HP/Palm and WebOS. It is going from a tiny group of devoted users to potentially being one of the top Mobile platforms. There are tons of changes happening with many new products and devices. Since rod has been around from the early days of only the Palm Pre I would like to hear his option about where WebOS has been and his vision back in the day and how it compares to where it is now. Also I would like to know how he feels about HP's grand plan, does he want WebOS to be the top platform, does he want it to be more enterprise oriented, does he care for the cloud and connectivity? Does he want a 4" slab phone, does he plan on getting a tablet? Is HP moving in the right direction and does he see homebrew continuing to grow in the right direct that aligns with HP? Is there anything that he has concerns about regarding future hardware, software, Services, and so. If HP does move away from embracing homebrew would he leave and go to another platform?
Some of these might have already been answer and I am sure there are many more questions that everyone would like to ask Rod. Feel free to to add them and maybe he will be kind enough to answer a few.
