Because these things are all new and in flux, there aren’t a lot of great resources out there for everything. When there are good resources they tend to be written by groups working for browser developers (MDN, HTML5Rocks, MSDN, dev.opera.com) and so are not reliably browser neutral. Worse than that, the official HTML5 spec documents many wonderful features that no one has implemented yet. I’ve been bitten by that disappointment more than once!
So I’ve decided that I am going to put up a quick post every week or so about what I’ve been hacking on or reading about so that I have a record of my discoveries and hopefully some small working examples of various techniques to look back at. On the off chance that any one else is interested, that’s a bonus!
