As you may be aware, not all of the list members are local to Colorado, so I 
want to clarify something with regard to the sharing of RFPs that come in off 
of www.comodev.com.  My idea in starting Colorado Mobile Developers was to help 
build the local mobile software economy on the Colorado Front Range, and the 
way the RFP feature is billed on the site is as a service for Colorado 
companies "looking for local developers."  Consequently, I'll only be 
forwarding RFPs to developers that are local (in Colorado).  

This is not meant to be a slight to anyone who doesn't live in Colorado, nor do 
I want it to be interpreted as some kind of political statement since I happen 
to believe that globalization and free competition are a Good Thing.  (Some who 
know me may even think I occasionally go too far in defending these ideals.)  
But I pay for the CoMoDev site with my own money and time and see it as a 
matter of helping one's own "family" first.

At the moment it's a small thing, but I'd love to think that CoMoDev and other 
organizations like it could eventually make a tangible difference for people 
who want to make a living doing mobile software development but prefer to do it 
in Colorado if they can, rather than have to move to Silicon Valley or some 
such.  If we Colorado mobile developers start to make enough of a name for 
ourselves collectively it will attract new opportunities and new talent to our 
area so that more of us can "live the dream" right here. And wouldn't that be 

If you aren't local to Colorado and would like to register to receive RFPs from 
companies from all over, check out www.mobilecoders.com or www.guru.com and I 
think you'll find what you're looking for.

Best wishes to all!
