I've just flipped through these slide presentations and I sure do wish I'd been there. It sounds like some really good talks. Did anyone video tape?

that birflux thing is very impressive. i'm thinking to play around wih midas editor (coming in 1.3 release) and recycle some ideas from bitflux. the downside is that i find the demo (<http://demo.bitfluxeditor.org/>) pretty slow on my 1.4Ghz machine. maybe integrating the whole thing with midas would speed up things abit more. however nice one.

We (Bitflux) wanted to look into Midas for a long time, but didn't have the time to do it. Maybe this is a solution to make it more responsive and better editable. Everyone is invited to join our Mailinglists at <http://bitfluxeditor.org/development/mailinglists/> and help out with developement. Now's the best time, as we are in the planning phase for the next major version :)
