- Eric at Adapted Studio put together this sweet little demo of HTML5 and Canvas in action, in the form of the Game of life. Source code is included, too, if you want to learn a few nifty things.
- Color me surprised, but Microsoft is actually purporting to work together on at least some of the HTML5 spec. This could be good. Using <video> would be much easier if everyone would do it. But there still is the nasty issue of codecs, which is even more thorny than W3C specs.
- Also worth perusing is Mark Pilgrim’s Gentle introduction to video formatting. If you’re a video geek, you might know some of this, but there’s detail that might fill in some gaps. The slides are also slightly amusing. I had no idea the .mkv format came from a bunch of guys in Russia that decided to opensource it.
