    I'm with messrs. Thorup and Thrasher: it would be great to get the videos. There was a lot of excellent information, and I couldn't get it all down fast enough.

    It would have been easier to get there a half hour later. Traffic was stop and go all the way from San Francisco. Not your fault, of course.

    Sid always gets the great presenters, and the guys from Nitobi lived up to that. Phonegap is a really exciting project. Lots of technical details on how and why to use phonegap to develop apps using htnml5, css3 and js

    It was a great Meetup. Would like to see some events held closer to San Francisco, but on the other hand, the meeting place was nice. Meg really knows how to put together event space.
