If you’re as excited about what HTML 5 can do as I am, then you’ve already seen this site weeks ago. The Wilderness Downtown is Google Chrome collaboration with the band Arcade Fire to create an interactive music video for their song “We Used to Wait.” I’ve been showing it off to all my friends in order to explain how HTML 5 is changing how we interact with the internet. On top of the song being pretty darn good – the video will change the way you think about experiencing music. Take some time to experiment with all of the features of the music video. Play with the birds, type, draw, and for god sakes, use Google Chrome when viewing this . . . in fact, just always use Google Chrome. And make sure you put in an address that can utilize the technology – watching trees shoot up out of the street outside my apartment complex was the icing on a very cool cake.
