HTML5 Audio Experiments and the Future of the Internet

I have just finished reading the “Experiments with audio” blog post collection by David Humphrey. I must say I am pretty impressed by what has been achieved in such a short time.

I am sure that there are many people out there who would be interested in accessing the raw data APIs for HTML5 audio to directly modify and generate graphics for the music, up until now something that could only be done with technologies such as Flash.

This may well be another step forward for the open web and will certainly expand the usefulness of the HTML5 audio and video tags. I am looking forward to seeing how this develops. This should also hold benefits for other people, even those who are not interested directly in the technology since this and other such APIs should push forward the performance improvements of JavaScript on the internet since the graphic and processing engines are entirely written in JavaScript.

Good work guys!
