What the Palm OS market lacks-a "mascot"

I was at a national semiconductor signal path seminar today. Of course, the information presented there was interesing, and going there definitely paid out. One figure stood above the rest-Bob Pease.
This guy is anm excellent and funny analog engineer that seems to have worked in almost every team national ever had or will ever have. Altough he is about 60 already, he is still full of energy and makes an extremely good teacher and presentator. However, he seemed to clearkly violate some if the non-written rules of presentations.
For example, he was the only presentator to use hand-written overhead slides-everyione else used a beamer and powerpoint. He was the only presentator who did not unclude a complete set of slides into the documentation book that was placed on each visitor's chair. The manual that we found was incomplete and had some scorchmarks, coffee cup rings, etc printed into it. Bob wore a long, long white beard, and so on....
I was stunned-Bob Pease stood in front of us and talked with everyone. He even answered my questions long and wide. When I overcame my awe, thought struck me. Everyone who knows Bob starts to consider him ther typical analog engineer. And thats the crucial point-everyone connects Bob Pease with National Semiconductor.
Tune in tomorrow for some pictures of the event and for what I beleive that Palmsource must do...

PalmSource has their person who we associate with them - it's not David Nagel, or Michael Mace, or Larry Slotnik.

It's Dave Fedor.

The only problem is that Dave seems to have progressed up the ladder and has had less of a presence in the day-to-day developer support world than he used to. Ben Combee filled that roll at PalmSource (and before for Metrowerks), but now he's at palmOne and this is not his main job (although he does a great job at this anyway - the man must love helping out others, and he's good at it to boot). There are others trying to fill the shoes, but no one has caught on yet.

That's why I posted under anonymous. :-)

(BTW, Thanks for the thanks - I'll come up to you at the DevCon to get the check in person ;-) )

Hi,
Ben Combee is indeed a well-known figure-for the developer.
But we would need a mascot for the users, too....
