Hi,

Great! It seems we have the critical mass of interested folks at TPAC, so I proposed a Web & Virtual Reality breakout session:

Folks who'll be at TPAC - feel free to embellish the proposal :-)

Thanks,

-Anssi

Please note a W3C workshop on the Web & VR topics will be held roughly a month after TPAC on 19-20 October in San Jose, CA, USA (registration is open until 16 September):
