I'm here as a lurker *only* (not communicating in any official way),
but happy to see some familiar e-mail addresses. I'm hopeful the
signal to noise ratio will be good, but this thread seems open for
introducing yourself to the PandaBoard community. :-)

Work: I have started working on PandaBoard. Its a great development
platform for the beginners and experienced
hackers alike! I would try to support PandaBoard with the technical
queries and issues mostly on Kernel and partly on user-space.

I recommend folks interested in a new, challenging Linux-Android
embedded platform, based on Omap4 to participate in PandaBoard's early
adopter program!

Work: Technical writer and community manager at MontaVista Software

What's up with me and PandaBoard:
I am writing a book on the BeagleBoard, and would like to expand into other similar & derivative projects assuming the book is successful.  I would very much like to see the PandaBoard foster the same level of community involvement that the Beagle has been so successful with.  I am also working on a white paper for MontaVista related to our toolchain support for the OMAP4, so I have multiple interests.

I haven't got one yet, but my plan is to keep working on GStreamer,
and make it easy to use the hw acceleration part, maybe consolidate

I work as a software programmer on part time, while I work on electronics  boards   in order to pay bills.
I also distribute Arduino boards in my country, Nigeria.

Why am I here?
Basically to see if I  can "play" with embedded system via pandaboard , and learn how to program them. I am a newbee in this area so you might expect some "silly" questions.

Emeka

What's up with me & PandaBoard: Working on designing embedded Linux

We do offer low-resources media center application and customizable
embedded systems maximizing hardware acceleration
(through OpenGL|ES, OpenVG, OpenMAX and friends) to multiple embedded
systems (x86, PPC, ARM9, ARM11, OMAP3 and Tegra2).
PandaBoard will be our OMAP4 reference design as to provide complete
support. It currently already works on Panda (tested by TI people)
but I'm waiting for my Panda to see it from my own eyes :-)

So, using the mighty OMAP4 for embedded
multimedia is the next logical step for me ;)

Name: Jason Kridner
Work: I've worked at TI for 18 years on ASIC+board design, ROM codes, security, DSP support, audio and video codecs, USB and file system stacks, Linux support (user since 1992), and have been pushing for TI to invest in open platforms throughout my career, but specifically on OMAP only in 2007, when Gerald and I and a handful of other TIers invited Linux kernel hackers to TIDC to discuss the BeagleBoard concept. We've won some and lost some, but the message has resonated both at TI and in the electronics and hobbyist industries. I'm expecting many years of continuing to gain more ideas and involvement in our growing BeagleBoard community, improving the state of Linux and open source on ARM and C6000.

What's up with me & PandaBoard:
Well, it should make an interesting build host for the BeagleBoard :-) and I just generally want to have one for fanless networked HD video on my TV. I hope to see a lot of shared open source software between Panda and Beagle and open source alignment of multimedia stacks needing IPC.

Would love to see the pandaboard as full HD capable mythfrontend. The
preferred way to archieve it would be IVA-HD support in FFmpeg.
I'm MythTV/kernel/FFmpeg developer so it should be possible with iva-hd
documentation.
Another cool project would be an update of the BeagleBoard based
videowall to an 4K 2x2 wall using 2 or 4 Pandaboards.
