    Wow, this is a very cool initiative. Compared to some conferences costing hundreds of dollars to attend, to only ask for a donation is awesome!

    I totally understand Microsoft’s desire to make web not war, but most of my daily battles are because of IE…. so….. that statement kind of gets lost with the reality that it’s mostly their fault.
