You asked how to get out of that vicious circle of not gaining enough 
users/developers/devices.  I recommend *more* collaboration an *less* 
competition.

Waiting for others to collaborate with you in your playground is *less* 
collaborative than joining others in their pre-existing playground.

It is all collaborative.

It is all competition.

It is all good.  But could be better.
