Hi all,

I'm Olli Pettay from Mozilla, 'smaug' on IRC.
I do generic Gecko core development, focusing mainly on
DOM, DOM Events and cycle collector, and I do also lots of
code reviews (which includes reviewing the specs).
I'm also a member of WebApps and WebEvents WG.

I'm interested in to find better event model for touch handling,
and if we can deal with mouse events at the same time, even better.
