    Missed the meeting and enjoyed the after meeting discussion. I have some experience with this technology in the past, looking to add this to my business skill portfolio and join the community. Essentially I am a freelancer interested into adding my ability to earn a living in the creative arts/sciences.

    I thought Gretchen did a great job with explaining the different types of backgrounds and showing examples of each. I also enjoyed her tips on testing your site and the "gotchas".

    The presentation was very informative. It helps to see what others are thinking and talk about their experiences. Being able to see examples is also a great way to visualize the dos and don'ts of web design.
