    I've been pondering this for a while now. Do I load up on the books and learn it because this is the next generation of the web? Or do I just keep puttering along and just outsource it when I need it.

    I do have to say I do love the idea if the ipad but I know the other vendors are going to have their version out in the fall. Will it be based on an only html 5 or will they allow flash?

    Yes, it's not only worth the time but highly recommended in my opinion. Since Apple is not supporting flash in their handheld devices and Adobe was so smart to draw more and more criticism about their bloated player from multiple sources it might not last forever...

    And even if they keep having a certain market share it seems pretty evident that HTML5 will be one of the major players of the future and, since this is a black hat forum, being ahead of your competition understanding (exploiting?) a new technology might make bank for you.

    P.S. Plus, canvas in js are SOOOOO cool... lool

    I have to say yes. Flash is on its way out unless Adobe can do a massive overhaul or more rebuild flash from the ground up. As flash today is over bloated and full of security problems. Plus from what I understand HTML 5 can do some of the things flash does. Plus if you code your own sites it is always best to keep up with the most current release standard.

    I am lucky enough to have sign in to Safari books and I can read all the book they have online. I have not been a fan of html in general but in some areas it does have its perks. I think for blogging this might be the way I have to go. But nothing out there is as slick as wordpress and building in adsense into a product.

    Thank you for your time and insight into this new web standard.
