I think doing a demo showing how we can easily run against Google 
Chrome, Opera (mobile and desktop) and Firefox (Desktop, Android and 
Firefox OS). This does not need to be anything fancy for a demo but 
shows how with a standard we can show the interoperability between browsers.

After speaking to a few people part of Test The Web Forward, we can 
possibly use it to help build a community around building our test 
suites since Selenium is becoming a required skill for web developers 
and web QA.

Does that sounds like the demo you would like to see?
