17:29:34 [bringert]
... but discussion has moved towards JavaScript
17:30:02 [bringert]
... Voxeo has a multilanguage API called ?
17:30:29 [bringert]
... I will send it in to show a different way to structure things, but it's not created specifically for this group
17:30:39 [bringert]
... we are already using it today
17:30:50 [bringert]
... two people joined the group recently
17:30:55 [bringert]
... not on the call today
17:31:03 [bringert]
... one person from Intel
17:31:43 [bringert]
... and then Jerry Carter has also joined the list
17:31:57 [bringert]
... so we might see a few other proposals
17:32:46 [bringert]
... would be good for each proposal submitter to list whether proposal supports each requirement
17:33:00 [bringert]
... just to make it clear which proposals cover which requirements

bringert: update: some version of Google's proposed API is now live in a released version of Chrome
