Meet again at YAPC::Asia 2010 Tokyo in October

I was back to Japan from Taiwan. It's my third time to attend the OSDC.TW. I must say thank you for the Taiwanese hackers to warmly welcome us,, to have our first tech talk session abroad. More than a few of us, including me, must attend the OSDC.TW again next year.

By the way, some people there asked me when the YAPC::Asia Tokyo would be held. It's not officially announced in English.

@941-san who is the events organizing lead in the JPA, Japan Perl Association, has announced the brief schedule for the YAPC::Asia 2010 Tokyo as following:

  • May - the first splash website opened
  • July - CFP started
  • August - registration started
  • October - curtain-up!

Details about the venue and exact date don't seem fixed yet. They are planning to hold it at somewhere in/near Tokyo at October 14th-16th as their current plan noted only in Japanese. After fixed by the JPA, the details would be announced also in English as in the past years.

I hope you all friends could meet here again at Japan's beautiful season of Autumn.

3D Bookmarklet - Enjoy 3D world on the Web by CSS3

The 3D Bookmarklet is a bookmarklet which allows you to dive into the 3D-world on the Web. CSS3 capable browser is needed. Firefox 3.5 and Chrome 5 is tested.

* Get the 3D bookmarklet

Drag the link [3D] onto your browser's bookmark toolbar, etc.

* Try now on this page

Every 2D websites will come into 3D with this. You need to have a red/blue (anaglyph) 3D glasses by yourself. The CSS3 standard allows iPhone and iPad to run this. Enjoy 3D everywhere!

Gugod and I have corroborated to the code snippet as a result from the OSDC.TW Hackathon.

How this works

This sets all text's CSS color property to red, and also sets text-shadow property to blue on right. Gugod gave me an idea to hack to draw with alpha channel using rgba(). Each 3D layer, depth, is depend on sort of its element and font size. Firefox seems not to allow !important within element's style attribute. Chrome however does. Only texts are made into 3D. Images are not yet at this version.
