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