I was wondering what were you thought on being able to build an app similar to prezi (presentation app) using HTML 5.

Also while you're at it, I'm looking for a good HTML 5 book recommendation. Thanks!!

Some work already being done on alternatives, all SVG-based:

I'll leave it to you to decide whether SVG counts as "HTML5"...

There's now the recently-released impress.js, which is obviously Javascript-based.

  • these are pretty cool too! I like the concepts. Thank you!

Prezi is written in Flash/ActionScript, but there's no reason you couldn't attempt something similar with HTML/JavaScript. (Note that you won't be able to create an application like Prezi with HTML5 alone. You will need JavaScript too.)

Here are my favourite books on both subjects:

HTML5 books

JavaScript books
