    Where can I get "canvas.js" from? Also, what was the snippet you used at the beginning for the document.addEventListener magic?

    Thanks for watching the talk. The canvas.js I used during the demos was pre-canned, somewhat boilerplate canvas code. I'd recommend grabbing something similar from one of the samples. E.g.

    Great session!    I am just learning HTML5 and this session really raised my awareness on this and other technologies as well.  Great job Scott!  Thanks for the upbeat presentation!

    I gotta say... it is so frustrating to watch you guys demo new stuff and not be able to follow along because you don't make the source files available. "Something similar" is ok if you know how to make it work just like yours did.

    @reply to comment:Agreed, very frustrating...  especially when the entire session beyond <h1>Hello World</h1> requires and builds upon whatever magic he's got going on in his canvas.js file.  He started off the talk stating that this session would bridge the gap between the high-level concepts in the keynote and the deeper thechnical concepts of the other sessions, and that "we'd be writing a lot of code"...  I thought, "Great!... I can pause the video, and write along side so I can digest what's going on."  But as it turns out, he was the only one writing code, and I just sat there semi-lost...  not cool.

    So... now that I've painstaikingly written my own canvas.js file, any chance of getting that tile.js file used at the end?...  I would copy it from the paused presentation but some of the lines of code go beyond the edge of the screen.

    Just another one stating the obvious. this is frustrating.. why not show the source code? why make us work harder to recreate the demos?
