HTML5 Mobile Development

I received an email this morning with the master schedule for Code PaLOUsa and it looks like I'll be speaking on HTML5 Mobile Development. I'd love feedback on the session topic/description.

One of the biggest hurdles for mobile development is bridging the gap between incompatible platforms. From the very beginning HTML has been the only true cross platform solution and, with the introduction of HTML5, developers are now able to create rich applications. Microsoft has even begun shifting away from Silverlight and stated at PDC that HTML5 is the future. This session will provide the tools and techniques you need to get started developing mobile applications using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

Also, here's what I came up with for a speaker bio. I'm sure it could use some tweaking and would appreciate input.
