Sorry for the ignorant question - does this mean the technology will be web based or native? (i.e - java on top of android, Swift/Objective-C on top of IOS)

I spoke with mbetak about this a few months ago.
When you speak of console, you mean to actually view the VM using spice? sounds very interesting.
If I recall, Alon levy (a former red hatter) worked on some spice implementation for html5 or something like that.

Anyway, back in TLV I also had some ideas around that. Do you have some IRC meetings or something that I can join?
