I added my first Sidewiki comment

Appropriately enough added to my own [posterous.com](http://posterous.com) blog posting about Sidewiki.

Unexpected, but perhaps not suprising, was the discovery that as a Google “customer”, you can post your comments to your Blogger blog(s)! Twitter, Facebook and other social sharing possibilities surely must be close behind.

Google I/O 2009 – Google’s HTML 5 Work: What’s Next?

http://youtube.com/v/AusOPz8Ww80

I have a lecture next week which will discuss HTML markup. I have lots of notes and examples for XHTML 1.0 and CSS 2 which I think students should read through for some deeper learning rather than be presented in a lecture. I have instead decided to show [this video](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siOHh0uzcuY). On searching,I also found this presentation from Google I/0 2009 (the Google developer’s conference) which talks about what’s coming next!

It’s very early days and HTML 5 seems to be being developed in quite a piecemeal way with browser developers emphasizing some features and not others. It may be several years before all of HTML 5 is supported in all browsers, but that doesn’t mean that my students shouldn’t know that it’s coming.

Déjà vu all over again!

Last year I started my photo a day project with a snap of the flooded path from the University (where I work) to Brynmill (where I live). Here we are in a new year and once again it’s raining and the path across Singleton Park has become a river.

A day to be enjoyed by only by Labradors.

Autumn has come early this year and I’m wondering what happened to the summer! It seemed to have been all over by the end of May this year.

Season 2 Begins with Saint Barbara

It would appear that I am addicted! After taking a couple of days off from my first 365 photos project, I am, like the best American television series, back for season two. So here is the first upload from a second year of “a photo a day”. The image, of Saint Barbara, parton saint of

artillerymen, military engineers, miners and others who work with explosives …, and also of mathematicians [Wikipedia]

Is to be found in the Faraday Tower, at Swansea University.
