Polling was so good, that I decided to stick around for the next propeller hat presentation on SGV. Scaler vector graphics, in my opinion are the next step in web presentation. This W3C backed open-source implementation of Flash is created through XLM and play well with both CSS and JavaScript. However, like most good things, microsoft has been slow to implement the standard.

He showed a great graphical example of Edward Tuff’s sparklines created with SVG. Even more examples could have been good- some of the crowd began to nod off after 20 minutes of XML.
