Alistair,

While I think the idea of gathering end-user feedback is a good one, I feel
it is notoriously difficult to get a significant number of users to 'fill
in' a straight questionnaire. I wonder if we might spice it up a little with
examples (videos?) of next-gen browser stuff that people here and others are
already working on. This could help propel it into the wider web development
community.

Where working examples do not exist mock-ups or diagrams could be provided,
I'm thinking that this should be an audio-visual experience. Perhaps these
examples should be provided with an opportunity to rate and feedback under
each one, we might even get some discussion going.

Web based audio is an exciting development and I think we should promote it
as such. :)

Cheers

Mark
