With all the buzz about HTML5 its high time to release an official post on the subject and cement our intention to support the standard fully. It is impossible to ignore the possibilities of a single thin-client based development environment and common sets of tools for working with them. Add to that the fact that modern mobile web browsers are being designed with HTML5 and CSS3 rich features in mind, and you have a developer’s dream platform for reaching as many devices and operating systems as possible.

HTML5 could deliver on the promises that other languages and platforms such as:

  • Java
    (Applets in the browser, Swing GUIs on the desktop, MIDlets on Mobile)
  • Flash
    (Flex RIAs on the web,  AIR apps on desktop, FlashLite on Mobile)
    and even
  • .NET
    (ASP/Silverlight on the web, VB/C#.NET Windows programs on the desktop, .NET Compact Framework on Mobile)

all failed to truly deliver on!

To that end, here are two useful templates for developers to get started quickly with HTML5 and its new features:

BC$ = Behavior, Content, Money

The goal of the BC$ project is to raise awareness and make changes with respect to the three pillars of information freedom - Behavior (pursuit of interests and passions), Content (sharing/exchanging ideas in various formats), Money (fairness and accessibility) - bringing to light the fact that:

1. We regularly hand over our browser histories, search histories and daily online activities to companies that want our money, or, to benefit from our use of their services with lucrative ad deals or sales of personal information.

2. We create and/or consume interesting content on their services, but we aren't adequately rewarded for our creative efforts or loyalty.

3. We pay money to be connected online (and possibly also over mobile), yet we lose both time and money by allowing companies to market to us with unsolicited advertisements, irrelevant product offers and unfairly structured service pricing plans.
