Bruce Lawson is one of my favorite technical speakers, and it was great to see him at @media conference in London. A few days ago he wrote HTML5 Semantics which gives a nice round-up of the state of semantics in November 2011. A great read even if you’re already fluent with semantics.

"We drove along Route 6, Route 66 and Route 666. If there was a Route 6666, we must have missed that turn."

"The town of Como, largest settlement around Lake Como, attracts a lot of people with big wallets. But I preferred to take the funicular up the mountain to the Brunate region, where you get a much better view of the lake."
