A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me a link to a contest that An Event Apart is doing along with (*gasp!*) Microsoft where entrants build an HTML5 web application in less than 10Kb. I looked over the existing entries at that point and thought they were pretty lame. People were getting so stuck on the 10Kb requirement—and they were attempting the fool’s errand of cramming images and tons of CSS into 10Kb. I thought that was the wrong approach.
Anyways, I’ve been extremely surprised and pleased with the praise I’ve gotten for this while it’s been in the works. Many thanks to all my friends who helped me test it and adjust it to be what it is now. Don’t expect this to be the last you hear of Asteroidz, space cadets.
