HTML5 is “The road to awesome”

html5.pngI was looking for writing inspiration recently and came across "A Pep Talk" by Kid President. Don't ask me to explain. You'll have to watch the video, like the 28-million-plus other viewers. Kid hits upon the famous Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken" and he reports that the road less traveled "hurts, man." He would much rather take what he calls "the road to awesome."

 

What does all of this have to do with mobile computing? Well, I was thinking that the road less traveled could easily represent native Android and iOS development. This road hurts. Because of the pain, not many enterprises have gone down this path. Is there  an alternative?

 

Then I heard about  Amazon adding HTML5 apps to its app store  and realized we can now hit the awesome road with HTML5.

 

I recently wrote a post on informationweek.com that examines the “Awesome Road” of HTML 5. I encourage you to read it to find out why I think 2014 should really be called 20-HTML5.
