ECHO Conference and MediaElement.js

My good friend Nathan Smith and I are giving a little presentation Friday at ECHO Conference. We’re not presenting on media ecology or anything theological, just good old straight forward web development. Nathan and I actually met over email when he was the web developer at Asbury Seminary and I was working at Dallas Theological Seminary.

I’m also releasing the first draft of a little code library that helps developers implement HTML5 <video>. You can click the image below to check it out.


The point of this exercise is that for all the tradeoffs and downsides to technology, we are still called to be makers and creators, and I always want to be a part of that.

  1. I loved going through your Martain-language conference slides, and sweetheart, you need to know something. HTML5 is not the newest hotness. YOU ARE! Love it, love it, love it that you can talk Dostoevsky & Shakespeare with me, Hebrew, Greek, & theology with your students, media ecology with the philosophical, HTML5 with the ECHO guys and gals, and Quackie the Duck with baby Benjamin!
