Yay! Glad others are noticing!

Not much, I have a few thoughts though. I wanted to focus on the following:
1) Beagle-Xeasm work, we will have almost everyone involved in this
spec available too us, so lets work on getting our compatibility 100%
2) Gnome-Do plugin. I want a solid beagle plugin for Gnome-Do, should
be a super-quick codeup
3) Dashboard. I have a million and one ideas working for this, but the
core of it would hopefully be getting some unified means of generating
clue packets/context. I am thinking that utilizing screenreader api's
to get working windows/text could be very helpful here.
4) Beagle Client Optimization. We still do the whole XML serializing
and deserializing thing... Look into Dbus/Protocol Buffers to increase

Prioritization of these tasks obviously depend upon what everyone here
thinks/input at the hackfest.

Absolutely, it would be great to have more Beagle voices present in
the discussions, as well as those willing to help code. As I mentioned
above, those are the closest things to my tasks, but I am very open to
more ideas!
