A few months ago, we heard an awesome story. It was about a dad, named Dallas Clayton, and a little book he wrote for his son about dreaming big, fantastic dreams – called An Awesome Book!
After writing the book, Dallas wanted to share it with more people. But every publisher he took it to turned it down. Instead of giving up, he taught himself how to self-publish, made some copies, and put the book on the web for free. People starting sharing the book online, and the copies he made started selling out. Dallas was able to share the idea of dreaming big with kids and adults all over the world, and he even got published.
We thought Dallas' story was, well, awesome. So we paid him a visit in Los Angeles where we tagged along on a school reading. Here's a glimpse at Dallas' journey so far.
Four years ago, the Chrome team kicked off a mission to make a better web for everyone. For us, helping kids – of all ages – use the web to read and dream is a pretty cool way to bring this mission to life. In that spirit, we wanted to harness the power of the web to get the book into the hands of as many people as possible. With the help of web developers and translators, anyone can now read An Awesome Book! in any one of 17 languages on a computer, tablet or phone – check it out in the Chrome Web Store. In Dallas’ own words, he wrote this book to be shared. “If you enjoy it, please feel free to share it with anyone and everyone you know and maybe that way we can all dream big together!”

When you want to build something for the web, it's surprisingly difficult to find out how you can implement your vision across all browsers and operating systems. You often need to search across various websites and blogs to learn how certain technologies can be used. It's kind of like a scavenger hunt, except it's not any fun.
This scavenger hunt is soon coming to an end. Google along with the W3C and several leading internet and technology companies just announced the alpha release of Web Platform Docs. Web Platform Docs is a community-driven site that aims to become the comprehensive and authoritative source for web developer documentation.
The founding members of Web Platforms Docs have all already provided a lot of content for the site to help get this effort off to a strong start. However, collectively, we’ve barely scratched the surface. We decided that it would be better to open up Web Platform Docs to the community as early as possible, so that everyone--including you--can help expand and refine the documentation, and ultimately define the direction of the site.
If you have more questions about Web Platform Docs, you can find us on Twitter.

In recent years, video has taken a central role on the web. Developers are using the latest web technologies to make it easier for users to access, watch, and create video content. Today’s Chrome Beta update includes more tools for developers to take video engagement to the next level.
Chrome now includes the PeerConnection API, which allows developers to create web apps with real-time audio and video calling without the need for a plug-in. Together, PeerConnection and the getUserMedia API represent the next steps in WebRTC, a new standard which aims to allow high quality video, audio, and data communications on the web. Check out this funky video chat demo to see how the PeerConnection API can be combined with other web technologies to create fun new video chat experiences. To start the video chat demo, send the url to a friend.
Last but not least, we’ve added the MediaSource API. It provides a video playback solution that adapts video quality based on changing computer and network conditions to prevent excessive buffering and startup delays for videos -- in other words, your video will play silky smooth for users with no annoying stutters. Watch how smooth this demo video plays despite fluctuations in your network speed.
To get your hands on all this tasty video goodness, download Chrome Beta.
