Workshop participants will learn how browser extensions (e.g. Firefox Add-Ons) enable us to locally modify Facebook.com and distribute it to the masses. Leingruber will be presenting the experimental and artistic Facebook hack concepts to the participants before turning these concepts into a real software that users worldwide can download and share.

HTML5 + Google Street View = Music Video 2.0

The indie rock band from Toronto is no stranger to innovative and interesting music videos, their “Neon Bible” web music video was thoroughly amusing but its innovation is dwarfed by their latest release “We Used To Wait”.

The Arcade Fire

In this video, The Arcade Fire and Director Chris Milk create a holistically personalized music video  experience and they utilized HTML 5 technology to deliver it. The video starts by asking you to input your childhood home address after which it will pull images from Google Earth, and Google Street view and age them in order to incorporate them into their video giving the entire soundtrack a nostalgic feel. Midway through the video, the user is provided with the opportunity to write a postcard to the current resident of their childhood home bringing us full circle in our thoughts of how it felt to grow-up in our childhood home. There are also a few Easter eggs around the website as well.

What Can HTML5 Do for You?

HTML 5 is the next generation of base platform of the web, while it’s still in draft that didn’t stop a large number of developers and companies to start showcasing some of what the platform offers.

Apple is one of those companies that is very excited about HTML5 and is pushing heavily for wider adoption for the technology. They have produced a showcase of some of the techniques that people should be looking forward to using in HTML5. The reason why Apple likes HTML5 is because it helps cure some of its flash phobias by providing native support for graphics within the HTML framework.
