Mozilla Firefox believes the web should be open…and they’ve created Mark Up so all who agree can contribute their support.
Mark Up captures marks using GML and mouse input and connects them end-to-end in a single line rendered in 3D space. Users can browse, pan, zoom, rotate and sort the animated marks.
Created in with the support of open web guru Lawrence Lessig, and in collaboration with designer Evan Roth, inventor of Graffiti Markup Language (GML), Mark Up's manifesto includes that “we are all authors of the Web, and by leaving our Mark we are supporting a Web that is open and in the hands of the people.”
Graffiti Markup Language (.gml), as seen below, “is a universal, XML-based, open file format designed as a bridge between ink and code, promoting collaborations between graffiti writers and hackers.”
So it doesn’t matter what sort of mark you make — what matters is that you make it.
