I expected there to be some selection as well but in retrospect I  
think it was just first come first served. Both I and my son were  
accepted and I know I didn't give any details of what I'd be working  
on. Being an ADC Select member may have helped me (or not). My son may  
have specified what he was doing since he was using the iPhone SDK for  
a school project.

It'll be interesting to see how Apple handles this since it was one of  
the big grumbles about the beta that no interpreters were allowed  
effectively shutting out languages other than objective-c.
