Great Things Afoot at Google

Google just recently had their Google I/O conference on May 10-11, 2011.  I watched what I could from my office here in Salt Lake since Google was kind enough to stream it.  I do wish that included the limited edition Galaxy Tab (10.1 running Android 3.0) that was given to all 5,000 attendees.  The event was interesting and it is neat to see how Google is driving the internet and web technology as a whole.  The highlights for me were definitely the progress that has been made with HTML 5 and WebGL.

For a quick review of the event I recommend you check out the event's home page here.

Also, make sure you check out ROME and see what the next generation browser can do today.  You will need Google Chrome to see this one but it is exciting to watch.  Keep in mind that this is not Flash or any other plugin; this is running natively in the browser.

Please enjoy and I want to tip my hat to the good work being done over there at the Googleplex.
