The browser vendors have been making great progress on SVG recently, and now it’s time for you to make progress in SVG, as well… that is, a progress bar, a spinner, or some other live graphic to indicate that the user has to wait. But you shouldn’t wait, because the deadline in June 11.
The deadline for what? For the Web Directions “No Bit, Sherlock!” contest, with prizes so cool they’re making me regret agreeing to be a judge rather than an entrant: a laptop tricked out with design software, an XBox 360, LEGO Mindstorms (can haz?), and those building blocks of Maker culture, LEGO and Meccano sets. What are you waiting for? Check out the details, hack up some SVG, and submit your entry.
Through no coincidence at all, I’ll be doing a presentation about SVG at the @media conference in London on June 10. I hope to see you there!
