Jesse James Garret started off this session by telling the story of how he came up with the term AJAX.  He basically needed a hook so that business people would understand his presentation without having to listen to a bunch of geeky tech talk.

Dylan Schiemann presented information on the available libraries and tool kits which support AJAX development.  I was surprised with the amount of choices.

Dori Smith played devil advocate by listing some of the pitfalls to poor AJAX design.  She also mentioned she authored a few books, including Java and Javascript.
