Since I’ve been tinkering around with HTML5 on my own theme, and reading debates over it the last few months, I’d like to propose a session on HTML5. There are quite a few things we can discuss, including, but certainly not limited to:
- Features of HTML5, including new tags and tag attributes, offline web applications, Geolocation, et cetera.
- Implementing HTML5 now; Design and development considerations for using HTML5, including browser support of certain features.
- HTML5 in the context of the Apple/Adobe argument over Flash.
- Potential impact of HTML5 on digital humanities work; How do standards bodies for technologies and languages affect our work and, conversely, how might digital humanities as a field begin to influence the development of standards such as HTML5?
I imagine we could hack out some code and examples, too. Any other ideas for this?
