Web 2.0 A quick round up of various web-related news items. First up, a new open source product entitled the "Highgate media suite" will bring OGG video decoding to Silverlight. Microsoft have just joined the SVG working group (arguably 10 years late, but it's better than nothing). Adobe promise significant improvements in Flash 10.1, including Core Animation rendering on OS X and lowered CPU usage. Finally, CoperLicht--a WebGL JavaScript 3D engine (Quake in JS will be here one day)

People complain about flash like they complained about java applet of the old days.
And people have been praying HTML5, video tag and WebGL as the internet savior.
Point is that as we let designer go crazy on the design and put everything they want in a website and making up some crazy requirement for the website we won't get out of this crazy cycle.


That's exactly what I've been saying all along.

No matter what the codec is, the result is more and more crap. With HTML 5.0 it is probably going to crap so wide that even regular "internet surfers" get annoyed.

Las Vegas and TV commercials. That's pretty much it.
