SlideADay Update

Since I posted my SlideADay request last night I’ve had 2 responses, so the presentation so far is scripted below, is there something you’d like to add? At 4pm today I’ll commit the first 30 seconds to video, so please get in with your suggestions before then.

To submit your one-line or whole 30 seconds of content about HTML5 just tweet it using the #SlideADay tag or comment on the blog post over here.


Script So far:

With HTML5 it it now easier to embed video and audio.  Simply use <video> and <audio> Element tags.  Plugins? What Plugins? [SMILE].  'HTML5 is not just one vast thing but a collection of individual features and the HTML5 specification defines how tags interact with JavaScript, through the Document Object Model (DOM).

With the DOM API you can build a rich user experience and now HTML5 includes new input controls like sliders, date pickers and email input type. Upgrading to HTML5 is simple by adding the <!DOCTYPE html> tag and allows the use of new semantic elements like <article>, <section>, <header>, and <footer>.

HTML5 is already well-supported with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, and mobile browsers already support canvas, video, geolocation, local storage, and Google already supports microdata annotations. With all these features HTML5 is here to stay and I will tell you why...'

    I'd like to point out my double use of 'it' 🙂 DOH!

    Beebs - how about 60 seconds what HTML means to the user without a development  background?

    Just a quick blurb about what it can offer me?  Feature rich multimedia, more personalisation etc etc.  

    Just a thought.

    Perfect Steve, first section is just 30 seconds though.

    So if you were going to say it.... What would you say. In just 30 seconds.

    What would I say? Hmmmm....

    I would say "I don't want to know about plug ins, add ins or downloads.  I just want the content I need, in front of me working on all my platforms and I want it to be secure.

    I want to move away from information overload.  I don't need 500,000 search results.

    I just need one.  The one I want."  <<<  Yes, that is the killer line mate.  

    I don't want a million options.  I don't want a million search results.  I just want one.  The one I am thinking of.

    It might need a bit of tweaking but hopefully it makes sense.  🙂
