I like Colin's seminar idea quite a bit. The increased interest in
DHTML techniques is breeding a whole bunch of brand-new JS
programmers in the community. It's a good time to give them a hand up
with the hard-earned learning that we've done on Fluid.
As for the title, Web 2.0 means so many things to so many people and
definitely Friday afternoon, maybe I can come up with something
better on Monday.
