Show yourselves.. I have a theory there are none.
I'ma programmer, however I have no clue how to create an app for the touch. I do know a few people here actually do though.
zodttd (I think that's the name?), the guy who's in charge of the GBA port posts here.
I'm bout to train up to being one... ur theory does seem right tho, from my observations Please Register or Log in to view images

Just as I suspected. There are about 3/4 actual devs on this site. If the one who ran this site wanted to get a bigger and better community, they would start a wiki explaining how to create touch/iphone apps.
If the one who ran this site could do that, he would be a dev, no? After all, it's a little hard to tell people how to write apps for the Touch when you don't know how to do it yourself.
Plus, any such Wiki would, in essence, be a course on learning C++, and there are tons of books, courses and online tutorials for that. I suggest you start here or here. Once you've sussed out the essentials of C++ programming, you can read up on how to use the toolchain available for the Touch -- or better still, the official SDK once it gets released.
Make no mistake, programming is no easy task. I used to develop back in the 8- and 16-bit days. There's a crapload and a half to learn. The good news is that once you've picked it up you can take it virtually anywhere and only have to learn the various SDKs and OS calls and such for the platform you're developing on.
Actually, programming on the touch / iphone is done in objective c, which is different enough that a C programmer would need a bit of study time.
Info on the toolchain is here:
Here's info on a demo program:
I'm just starting to set this all up myself.
If Java every runs on the ipod touch I'll be able to start deving, but I'm not familiar with objective c.
I've started learning. I built the toolchain on windows, kinda difficult, but still do-able. And I'm gonna get a book on objective-c soon. I think that if everyone tried a little bit of developing, they would get hooked. Like I have.
