People of HTML5 – Bruce Lawson

Category: Mozilla

The Mozilla folks including Mozilla Evangelist Chris Heilmann thought it a good idea to introduce some “People of HTML5,” starting with Bruce Lawson of Opera, co-author of “Introducing HTML5” and one of the curators of HTML5 Doctor.  Among the most vivid new technologies of the moment Lawson cites:

…DAP (“Device APIs and Policy Working Group”). This thrillingly-named set of specifications is further extending the capabilities of the Web by specifying APIs that allow access to device features like camera, contact books and calendar — much like Geolocation gives browsers access to the device’s GPS capabilities.
