Metabloging, Programming, Web Design

Ok not too excited about the following post, but at least i know that there is much improvement out there on other technologies and flash is not dominating the net…  (ropox)

Over in SproutCore land, they have been talking about Peter Bergstrom and his amazing work with Canvas and SVG:

Peter Bergstrom has been doing some amazing work with SVG and canvas tags in his SproutCore-based these project called PaperCube.  PaperCube visualizes citations their relationships between authors.  Watching the videos of his project, you’d swear he was using Flash or Silverlight, but its not.  He’s using only native web technologies powered by SproutCore and JavaScript.  It’s a great example of what’s possible using the browser’s capabilities today.

Checkout PaperCube’s Node Graph (SVG),  Per Year View (SVG), and Paper Tree (pure HTML).

Starting to get goose pimples about 2009 🙂
