Ajaxian » So all this is done in HTML5 by the way – The Web is so special as it isn’t owned by a single vendor. This means that this kind of crap can’t happen. One company can’t change the rules in one fell swoop. There isn’t that one company that can become misaligned with the interests of certain developers and Do Bad Things.
I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
