Allegedly. At time of writing, we were unable to reach Matt for comment.

Bonus Lightning Talks
Jay Hannah (@deafferret (https://twitter.com/deafferret)) on the Leap Motion (https://www.leapmotion.com/) interactive hands-free controller.
Nick Nisi (@nicknisi (https://twitter.com/nicknisi)) will demo a Leap Motion controlling a nodecopter!
If time permits, Zach Leatherman (@zachleat (http://twitter.com/zachleat)) on Fixed-Sticky (https://github.com/filamentgroup/fixed-sticky) (a `position: sticky` polyfill).
As always, we’ll head over to DJ’s Dugout afterwards for a few drinks and Zach will probably get all crotchety and worked up about progressive enhancement (again). It’ll be fun!
