HTML5 being touted as the wave of the future in markup languages. Just do a google search if you’re curious about html5 and you’ll find a ton of info on what it is. HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web. The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) started work on the specification around June 2004 under the name Web Applications 1.0.[1] As of February 2010, the specification is in the "Last Call" state at the WHATWG - which as mentioned earlier stands for WEB HYPERTEXT APPLICATION TECHNOLOGY WORKING GROUP. The main purpose of HTML 5.0 is to reduce the need of plug ins for RIA applications like Adobe Flash, Silverligh, Apache Pivot, JavaFX etc.

I won’t bore you with all the details about coding, but I found this cool online sketchbook while browsing completely flash free sketching application. It will be interesting to see if this will be cross system embeddable (Is that even a word? Good thing about the English language is use it and popularize it and somebody will add it in the dictionary) and portable with blogs/social networking sites.
