Wow, Brian, I just read through your website and the strength of the testimonials is amazing. I'm putting together a mobile app and am looking at using javascript for much of the UI rather than going native and you seem like the guy to talk to understand what is possible. Would it be possible to sit down and talk with you sometime?
