I will be summiting a position paper today. I will be pushing the 
technology set of xiph, and annodex as viable open standard for video on 
the web. I will push for standardization around free formats & 
containers. I will highlight the working example of metavid and 
wikipedia using firefox3. .
Hopefully I will also have time to throw together some in-browser close 
caption demo using annodex/cmml embed in the ogg stream and or parallel 
xml file access.

If anyone else from xiph community is going please msg me so we can 
coordinate a bit.
