We met to talk about Chrome’s decision to not implement Pointer Events, other browser thoughts and plans around Pointer Events and the future of Pointer Events from the point of view of library/framework maintainers and developers. Below are the notes from that meeting and they can also be viewed in this document https://docs.google.com/document/d/17BUdF-uSg_0CUwhyenaB5FZeob0HK9DcD85lC1sH6cA


Thanks for pulling together this meeting Kris (you may vaguely remember 
me from the jQuery Europe conf in Vienna earlier this year, where I 
presented on - no surprise there - touch and pointer events).  Good to 
see some further rationale explanation and indications on steps forward 
for PE, as up to recently I was left with the impression that after 
sinking time and effort into working on the spec, it was given the kiss 
of death.
