    Great evening! Loved the html5 demos and websites.
    I expect to see web pages becoming *much* more dynamic...

    Great presenters with interesting material, free training announced. Microsoft presenters were pleasantly platform agnostic.

    Great presentations. Overall, I loved it. It was an amazing preview of what we can achieve with newer web technologies and modern browsers. I would have preferred more focus on the more practical side of HTML5, primarily the header, article, section, aside, and footer tags. The last speaker gave this subject a little attention, but this is what everyone can choose to implement now, and *will* implement in the future, so it seems the most practical to me (not everyone is going to use canvas/video/audio tags).

    This was an excellent review of the state of the art in HTML5 and browsers. I don't know who else to thank other than Kevin Nilson and Doris Chen.

    Kevin, nice job at the meetup! Very well run by my perspective. I requested my O'Reilly book as well, after signing into the site. I hope to be cooking with the "R Cookbook" soon. (thanks for the link).

    The Microsoft IE9 presentation was amazing. The introduction to the meetup was disappointing and too basic, I´m sure that 95% of the audience has seen the video-tag before. The Google Chrome presentation was mediocre. Also, not wearing shoes sometimes takes the attention away from what you are presenting.

    Tab Atkins' and Scott Stanfield's presentations were great. MS guy was ok but too confrontational.

    It was a great event and it just kept getting better. The speakers were well prepared and the event altogether was well organized. So much useful information to learn which definitely inspires a novice like me to learn more about the magic html5 is capable of.

    Very good information, good perspective on changes, obstacles and challenges, and free food is always good. The Microsoft facility is wonderful, and I really appreciate how the MS culture appears to be moving more toward alignment with the open source reality.
