the rules)

Hi everyone,

I'm Alex Sexton. I'm an engineer at Stripe. I personally specialize in
JavaScript and web-apps, but we have a few other people that I'll be
keeping up to date that have other applicable interests and specialties.

We're very interested in an open payment solution that's easy for everyone
to use and enables commerce on the internet beyond old-world, hard-to-use
methods. We think it's important work to have open standardization here and
are happy to help where we can be useful. In fact, one of our old engineers
was behind some of the initial plots for requestAutoComplete
(requestProfile at the time --
http://blog.alexmaccaw.com/one-click-signups-and-purchasing ) (though it's
now very much a standards body/browser thing).

We're interested in getting the platform for payments built into web
standards and hope that we have some valuable insight based on our
learnings over the past few years.

I was able to be at EdgeConf with Manu (and asked the first question, if
you watched the recording).
