    For those of you who saw the Greenscreen project and are interested in both buying a Chromecast and saving a few bucks in the process, it appears Groupon wants to help you.

    In my lightning talk haste, I failed to give huge props to Edwin Zhang (https://twitter.com/ehzhang), who interned at Groupon this summer and was the driving force behind taking Greenscreen from lousy hackathon code to a great open source product. He also authored the awesome http://greenscreen.io page. Thanks Edwin, you rock!
