Presentations at Yahoo!, Google, Voices that Matter and Amsterdam Widget Camp
Phew, the last two weeks have been a blast, but also a bit tiring. I went on a visit to San Francisco in order to speak at the Voices That Matter Web Design Conference, and since I was in town anyway both Yahoo! and Google invited me to do a tech talk. I returned home on Friday, and on Saturday I spoke at the Amsterdam Widget Dev Camp organised by Vodafone NL. Fun, but wearing.
As you may know by now, I’m currently heavily engaged inW3C Widgets research, so it’s no surprise that three out of four of my presentations treated this topic. As usual I’ve put the slides online.
Yahoo! recorded and published my presentation for your viewing pleasure.
- The next day, in my Google presentation, I gave an overview of the current mobile browser market as well as W3C Widgets. I called upon the Google Android team to start supporting W3C Widgets, too; unfortunately I have no idea how (un)convincing I was. I finished by pointing out some possible security problems in W3C Widgets.
Google, too, recorded and published my presentation for your extended viewing pleasure.
- Then I had one day without presentations before flying back home and giving my Widget Camp presentation. It partly repeats the Google one, but I added some information about the
widget object and the config.xml file any widget needs.
At the urging of Jon Boutelle I became a SlideShare member and uploaded my presentations there, too.
(By the way, just a few hours ago I read Jeremy’s article about GeoCities being destroyed. Jeremy is concerned that this may happen to other services, too, and is not happy with this state of affairs.
I disagree with him; as far as I’m concerned the problem lies with people who put vital content only on external services instead of at their own site, where it belongs. If the data is important to you, keep a local copy. If you don’t, anything that happens next is your own fault.
That’s why I consider the slides here on QuirksMode.org the official and canonical ones, and the SlideShare ones mere copies meant only to give my readers and followers easier access and sharing possibilities. Should, God forbid, anything happen to SlideShare later on, no lasting harm will be done.)
