The official title of this infographic is “WTF is HTML 5 AND WHY WE SHOULD ALL CARE”. I couldn’t agree more. Of course, this excellent graphic doesn’t hurt. The shapes are evocative of those masterpieces of information design, the subway map, a friendly guide through a painful subject. Read and understand, my friends.
Great use of color, and about as effective a one-page description of a complex subject as I could’ve imagined!
