I realize I haven’t been blogging a lot about what I’ve been up to in the last few months so thought I’d better get a post out and share some of those things with you.
The open source Cocoon P2P library has been released and got Dirk Eismann on board as a contributor after speaking at FFK11 in April. With his help we were able to take it from more of a proof of concept to a solid solution for doing local IP multicast with the Flash Player (no server required).
We have great support for device discovery, messaging and object-replication. Reworking the video streaming and fixing some bugs on the accelerometer support is still on my todo list for the very near future.

I’ve had the pleasure to work on a book called “HTML5 Solutions: Essential Techniques for HTML5 Developers” with fellow authors Marco Casario, Charles Brown, Nathalie Wormser and Cyril Hanquez.
My contribution to the book is on using the Geolocation API – which, if you haven’t already tried it – is one of the most exciting features that is starting to become widely available with HTML5.
It turned out – in my humble opinion – to be a very good publication and should be shipping soon. I can’t wait to get hold of my author copies and hear reader feedback when it hits the stores.
