May 1st Reboot 2012

Today is May 1st and I have rebooted ericfickes.com.  I’m taking a simpler direct approach to my personal home page.  My site will be the heads up display, and I’ll still contribute to the internet via social networks and blogs I no longer host.

Here’s a quick recap of the previous versions of ericfickes.com.

V1 – the big html file

Version One of ERICFICKES.COM

V2 – WordPress

Version Two of ERICFICKES.COM

Enjoy 2012

I spoke about HTML5, and left out some notes

Tonight I spoke about the state of HTML5 and my thoughts about it’s future.  The overall message of the talk was to think of HTML5 as a tool rather than a Flash killer.  In time, HTML5 is expected to advance to a point where we can deliver “flash like” audio, video, and application experiences on any device with an HTML5 compliant browser.  Similar to XML when it gave us a common format to exchange data between different computer systems in 2000, HTML5 may be that tool to connect us across all devices.

In the now there is a great deal of energy by the major browser makers to implement HTML5.  However, it really feels like only the fun stuff is here right now ( audio, video, canvas ).  Chrome and Opera have plenty more impressive features, but it’s going to be be a while until HTML5 is that magical ubiquitous platform.  With all the major browsers getting monthly ( and sometimes semi-monthly ) updates, HTML5 is more than just all the rage.  It’s actually getting built!

And here are some of the notes that didn’t make it into the presentation, and information on the demos that did.
