In the recent Dive Into HTML5 Video with the Masters instructional webinar from ReelSEO, the final questions posed were whether the masters (Jeroen Wijering of Longtail video, and Philip Jagenstedt of Opera software) knew:

  1. If animated GIFs can be used to show an animation before the video plays? (Answer #1)
  2. When will HTML5 be ready for primetime? (Answer #2)

While some quick experimentation answered the first question for me, the second question is more of an opinion question than a factual right or wrong one.

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.
