GigaOm Tells You Why HTML5 Will Be Huge

It is no secret that HTML5 is important - the question is how big will it be? Word is out at GigaOm, that it will be huge - and moreover it is coming fast. Thanks to an article from Colleen Taylor, we also learn that Apple will have massive support for the platform. Moreover, Larry Dignan at ZDnet just wrote an article about how Amazon had to cave to Apple regarding in app purchases and how the only alternative for them and other companies is HTML5.

I couldn't be happier to see this activity around HTML5 as this is the week where TMC has launched its first ever DevCon5 event focused on HTML5 design, development and business opportunities. Our partner Crossfire Media and my company TMC are committed to helping the HTML5 community and fostering conversation and networking in the space. So far, the attendance is made up of the some of the most impressive companies I have ever seen at a conference - from media to tech and telecom and VCs. It seems everyone who sees the future will be at the show this Wednesday and Thursday in New York City. You can still register now and check out some of the show highlights below:
