Smashing / Web We Want Video Pitch
At Smashing Conference in New York on Tuesday, October 15, Microsoft is hosting a lunch session as part of its The Web We Want initiative. Developers are pitching their wants. I was invited to pitch my request, but since I will not be at the conference I was asked for a five minute video.
If you came here after seeing the video at the conference, please leave comments here. Or you can tweet me.
If that video is too large or otherwise chunking, view it at YouTube, which does a better job with streaming. It has the same captions.

I did not realize this was a contest. I thought we were just trying to make our case.
Thank you for sticking with us through the technical hiccups today!
