How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals (https://wiki.mozilla.org/MozCampEU2012/Tracks): Creating a new set of WebAPIs is key to enable Firefox OS and other developments on the web. While there are lots of them created now, there are still huge areas, that don't have APIs yet. This talk tries to make people want to implement new APIs and therefore make new things possible on Firefox OS and the open web in general.
