How this happened

Barry --

I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.

I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.

Probably the best of the presentations is the one given by Jensen Harris - 8 traits of great Metro style apps. Taking these 8 great traits point by point I'd like to give you my impressions as a long time iOS and Mac developer.
