As you may know I do freelance review/article work, most often for Sound On Sound. I have also written the User Guide to the Sequentix P3 Sequencer and will happily entertain commissions to do other stuff too. Drop me a line via the "Contact" link if you need something tackling.
I've also programmed sounds for Roland, Access, Waldorf, Dave Smith Instruments etc. so if you need some quirky sounds, I could be your man.
In addition, I beta test instruments and software for a variety of companies - if you need someone to test the results of your labours to breaking point and beyond, again, get in touch.
Oh, I just found the JIC's Oblique Strategies.
