In this talk, James Whelton (@JWhelton) explains how jailbreaking the sixth generation iPod nano propelled him into the jailbreak community. However, while Whelton had to step aside and allow others to pursue the iPod nano jailbreak (due to school commitments), he has got a variety of other projects on-the-go, including his tweet-crunching company. In the future, Whelton is planning on re-entering the jailbreak scene. And on the side, he could always work some stand-up comedy, because he's actually a really funny guy.
