Cilantro Lime Rum Cooler 

Here is the Cilantro recipe. Only change I make is that I blend the ice with the first blend. OK, 2 changes. I don't blend it the second time, I just hand mix it. The second time you blend it, it makes a lot of froth probably because of the lime juice. I also do the entire Cilantro stick, not just the leaves and I do 2 batches with the same cilantro leaves and I mix the 2 batches, why waste.

Cilantro Lime Rum Cooler

1 cup firmly packed cilantro leaves
1 quart iced spring water
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, about 5 limes
1 cup rum
1 cup chrushed ice
In blender on high speed, puree cilantro leaves, 1 cup water and sugar for 2 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Discard any fibrous residue. Return mixture to blender. Add remaining water, lime juice, rum, and crushed ice. Blend at high speed for 30 seconds. Serve immediately. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serves 4

HTML5 and the [mobile] Web 

via Tim Bray
What’s the best thing that could happen? Some widely-interoperable dialect of HTML5 becomes broadly usable quicker than expected, and we get decent tooling around it quicker than expected, and the nature of the devices evolves slowly enough so as not to outpace heavyweight browser technology. In this world, software user experience is on average better and development cost is on average lower. ¶

The worst thing that can happen? HTML5 is holed below the waterline by some combination of interpersonal toxicity and corporate land-grabs and intellectual-property litigation; doesn’t become a really appealing application platform for a few more years.

But the best case doesn’t help the Web, as such, all that much, and the worst case doesn’t really damage it. Because every interesting application, more or less, is already a Web application.
