- A badging framework for non-profits
Glyn Moody pointed this out over on his blog, Move Commons. I tend to agree that helping communicate applicable principles, even netting it down to a recognizable badge image, is useful but in what way is this a commons, other than it uses a mechanism like Creative Commons? There is a sharing component but why not just use a standard CC license, well placed and well advertised for that and call the project Move Framework or Altruism Policy or something catchy but entirely more accurate.
- YouTube starts experimenting with embeddable HTML5 video
As Marshal Kirkpatrick at RWW explains, this is distinct from their testing of HTML5 and WebM on the site proper. It is a bit of a reversal from their previous stance on only using Flash to share, or embed, video on other sites. Good news for the adoption of HTML5’s video capabilities even if we still have to push on the underlying issue of video codecs, specifically whether a patent encumbered or unencumbered format should rise to the level of de facto standard.
