Four short links: 2 April 2010

REST Data, Copyright Hell, iPhone Web Apps, HTML5 Quake

  1. OData — REST protocol for accessing datasets, based on Atom, JSON, and some XML formats for metadata.
  2. Thinking about Monkeys and Engineers and Copyright — short read, but makes you realise how tortuous the current remix possibilities make copyright law.
  3. How to Make an HTML5 iPhone App — walks and talks like an iPhone app, but is made entirely of HTML. (via Hacker News)
  4. Quake 2 for HTML5In the port, we use WebGL, the Canvas API, HTML 5 <audio> elements, the local storage API, and WebSockets to demonstrate the possibilities of pure web applications in modern browsers such as Safari and Chrome. (via waxy)
