I was recently exposed to SVG Girl (thanks Avi) and as a fan of anime and web technology, what a treat! At first glance, SVG Girl looks like a video of an anime, in reality it is an interactive video using all Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)! SVG is a family of specifications of an XML-based file format… Read More


I have discovered my own ‘Angry Birds’ style game addiction with Cycleblob. Released earlier this week, this Tron inspired game allows the player to control a light cycle and compete against other computer controlled racers on various 3D tracks. Beyond the cool factor of being able to race a Tron light cycle, the game utilizes… Read More

I’m instead going to look at a few things that I think are really interesting… HTML5 support!  Why is this so important?  HTML5 is like having flash lite without the plug-in!  (I still wish I had flash though).  But take a look at… Read More
