Maybe a nice task for GSOC?

> During the 2012 Google code-in Lionel wrote a nice chapter for MYOSA on
> making Activities using HTML 5 and WebKit. I have been slowly and steadily
> updating the other chapters in the book to use Sugar 3 and GTK 3. I have not
> updated the website with the latest changes because I don't want the book to
> be in a half-done state, but I have been making steady progress.
> One thing I have noticed from lurking on this mailing list is that HTML 5
> and Sugar have made a lot of progress since that chapter was written. I get
> the impression that what is written there may already be obsolete. I also
> feel that I'm not the guy who can fix that. I did a fair amount of Activity
> development before writing MYOSA but I've drifted away from it since then.
> I believe that HTML 5 is going to be a big deal for Sugar and that MYOSA
> needs to have some new or updated chapters to reflect that. I am hoping that
> some of you might contribute this content.
> As for my own updates, some of them might be published in a couple of weeks.
> Working on this book has been a rewarding experience for me. I consider it
> part of my own Constructionist education. Since finishing it I have been
> involved in writing or publishing many other books. I have transcribed books
> for Project Gutenberg and Project Gutenberg Canada. I have scanned a bunch
> of books for the Internet Archive, using a scanner I designed and built
> myself. I updated a memoir of my days among the Hare Krishnas that had been
> on a shelf for 30 years and published it, getting five star reviews on
> Amazon. I have formatted for publishing a twelve volume illustrated English
> edition of The Mahabharata, the great epic of India. I have written a
> science fiction novel and am working on a second one.
> I am not suggesting that contributing HTML 5 chapters to this book will
> change your life. However, it definitely changed mine.
