Maybe the first URL was included by error, but it's
a group rather than an account--which means that it
*is* exactly the sort of thing you're suggesting that
it should be :)

Me and the other 81 people in the group, presumably :)
I actually posted a notice there, just the other day--and
I expect to post more notices there as my project progresses.

I think you're right about the actual accounts, but the *group*
on identi.ca is actually quite good to have--it's not really
company `spokesperson' channel, but rather a community gathering-point.
I'm quite interested in what other people in the NanoNote community
are doing--and the fact that list is currently low-traffic actually
makes each post there *more* interesting.
There's actually a *`qihardware' group* on identi.ca, also,
which is also low-traffic but also seems worthwhile having
(if it didn't already exist, some fan would most likely create it;
also, I don't see that there's a way to delete *groups* anyway :))
 I actually, specifically, avoided writing "user community",
"hacker community", "developer community", or any other phrase
more specific than just "community": I don't think it'd be
a useful distinction, at this point....
"Don't be afraid to ask (λf.((λx.xx) (λr.f(rr))))."
