These are the things I've written that are tagged "html5"

MicIO.js

This is some crazy magicks and I love it: Use HTML5’s web audio API to create a hardware bus somewhat similar to how Square’s Credit Card readers works. I am abuzz with ideas for this right now and this is bad because I have actual work to do. (via Jesper)

Structure.io homepage refresh

So, we just launched an update to the Structure Sensor homepage, and it features some neat HTML5 / CSS3 tech. I’m pretty happy with it. It required me to learn a few things, which I’ll hopefully have time to write about here soon. It also marks the first time I’ve ever encoded video in WebM! […]

ScummVM Ported to Javascript

Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, LOOM, Indiana Jones, Monkey Island, all of the classics now playable in HTML5. The audio is Firefox-only for now, but this is damned impressive. And cool.

Timeline JS

Really slick timeline visualization that can pull in data from a Google Spreadsheet, Flickr, etc. I plan on using this for some weird stuff.

Defend the Open Web: Keep DRM Out of W3C Standards

The EFF is on the right side of this one, if there was any doubt: All too often, technology companies have raced against each other to build restrictive tangleware that suits Hollywood’s whims, selling out their users in the process. But open Web standards are an antidote to that dynamic, and it would be a […]

BrowserQuest

An HTML5-based massively multiplayer game using WebSockets. I’ve been wishing for something like this to exist for years now.

HTML5 Please

Paul Irish’s new site which gives general advice on which HTML5 features you can use responsibly.

Handheld Designer

A successor to the “Sweet solution,” an HTML5-based iOS app creator for Macs. Looks great in theory, looking forward to trying it out.

HTML is the new HTML5

Ian Hickson: The WHATWG HTML spec can now be considered a “living standard”. It’s more mature than any version of the HTML specification to date, so it made no sense for us to keep referring to it as merely a draft. We will no longer be following the “snapshot” model of spec development, with the […]

An Encoder Is Not A State Machine

Fellow Michigander Chris Adamson does a good job of elaborating on the problems Google’s decision to drop H.264 from Chrome in favor of WebM from the perspective of an implementor or creator. The short: It ain’t pretty. via @soypunk

HTML5 Audio Safari Extension

Another in the recent line of “replace Flash whenever possible” Safari plugins, which replaces popular Flash-based audio players with the HTML5 <audio> element. See also: The YouTube5 extension, which does the same for YouTube embeds.

onprogress

My good friend Shawn Medero’s new blog, which is a conversationally-toned look at the latest web browser development trends, issues, and a wee bit of futurecasting. Worth monitoring if you build websites or just need to look into the sausage factory every now and again.
