    Newyddion tech gorau y mis yn fy nhŷ i:

    SlideShare, the website for sharing PowerPoint presentations and other documents, has had a major makeover. The company has ditched Adobe Flash technology entirely, and rebuilt its website using the HTML5 markup language […]

    This means that SlideShare is now viewable on every kind of mobile device, from iPads to iPhones to Android devices and beyond. Another perk is that the website is now 30 percent faster and its files take up 40 percent less space than they used to. Search engines can now read the content within SlideShare slides. […]

    SlideShare initially set out to build its mobile experience by making individual apps for the Apple store, the Android marketplace, and others, but quickly realized that in the long term such a strategy would not be sustainable. […]


    Gobeithio fydd mwy o bobol yn mabwysiadu HTML5 – yn hytrach nag apps ar blatfformau dan gwmniau. Mae’r we a safonau agored mor bwysig. Beth sy’n dda yn yr enghraifft yma ydy’r manteision eraill: platfform niwtral, cyflymder, SEO.

    Nawr dw i’n trio dychmygu pob app fel gwasanaeth ar y we trwy HTML5.

    Rhaglenwyr: os wyt ti eisiau dysgu sut i adeiladu apps efallai dylet ti ystyried HTML5 (yn lle!).

    Cymru Agored 

    Claire Miller:

    […] Wales is lagging behind on open data.

    This page from Openly Local pretty much sums up the problem with Wales, with a grand total of no open data councils, not even any semi open ones – every other region of Great Britain at least manages a few.

    Open data appears to have passed Wales by. (All of which is hugely frustrating when you’re a data journalist working here).

    So it’s time to change this. […]

    11 syniad ar gyfer sesiwn hacio gan @davewiner 


    That’s why I like platforms without platform vendors. There’s no one to change the rules, decide that you’ve been copying them when they’ve been copying you. To deprecate the APIs that you’ve invested your life savings in.

    Facebook vs. Y we agored – neges bwysig gan Tim Berners-Lee 

    Your social-networking site becomes a central platform—a closed silo of content, and one that does not give you full control over your information in it. The more this kind of architecture gains widespread use, the more the Web becomes fragmented, and the less we enjoy a single, universal information space.


    100% cytuno. Am y we Gymraeg yn enwedig.

    In contrast, not using open standards creates closed worlds. Apple’s iTunes system, for example, identifies songs and videos using URIs that are open. But instead of “http:” the addresses begin with “itunes:,” which is proprietary. You can access an “itunes:” link only using Apple’s proprietary iTunes program. You can’t make a link to any information in the iTunes world—a song or information about a band. You can’t send that link to someone else to see. You are no longer on the Web. The iTunes world is centralized and walled off. You are trapped in a single store, rather than being on the open marketplace. For all the store’s wonderful features, its evolution is limited to what one company thinks up.

    Other companies are also creating closed worlds. The tendency for magazines, for example, to produce smartphone “apps” rather than Web apps is disturbing, because that material is off the Web. You can’t bookmark it or e-mail a link to a page within it. You can’t tweet it. It is better to build a Web app that will also run on smartphone browsers, and the techniques for doing so are getting better all the time.

    Some people may think that closed worlds are just fine. The worlds are easy to use and may seem to give those people what they want. But as we saw in the 1990s with the America Online dial-up information system that gave you a restricted subset of the Web, these closed, “walled gardens,” no matter how pleasing, can never compete in diversity, richness and innovation with the mad, throbbing Web market outside their gates. If a walled garden has too tight a hold on a market, however, it can delay that outside growth.

      Rwy’n cytuno 100%. Rwy’n cofio AOL yn y 1990au. Collon nhw eu mantais am fod y byd y tu allan i’r wal wedi tyfu’n gyflymach. Rhaid gobeithio y bydd datblygwyr yn gweld mantais o osgoi Apple a Facebook. Byd cul iawn fydd e os bydd eu llwyddiant yn parhau.

      Yn cytuno 50%. Mae peth o iTunes i’w weld rwan ar y we (yr apps i gyd). Mae na bosibilrwydd fydd iTunes yn gallu fod un hollol agored ag i’w weld ar y we gan ei fod wedi ei adeladu efo XML. Ond fel mae pethau ar y funud mae’n angenrheidiol i iTunes fod yn rhaglen o fewn ‘wal’. Gafodd iTunes ei greu oherwydd yr iPod ag mae’n hollol iawn i brynu CD ag rhoi’r cerddoriaeth yn iTunes. Mi allwch hefyd lawrlwytho cerddoriaeth o Amazon, 7 Digital a rhanfwyaf or we os yw’r cerddoriaeth yn DRM free, fel mae o ar iTunes.
      O ran yr App Store, mae o ar gau mewn ffordd ond yn gwneud bywyd llawer yn haws i’r cwsmeriaid, ag yn ffordd i developer gael ei raglen o flaen miliynau. Ag os ydych yn meddwl mai Android di’r ffordd, edrychwch i mewn i’r problemau mae’r developers di gael i gael ei apps i weithio ar handsets wahanol.
      Ddim llawer o farn am Facebook.
