Regarding the HTML5 Canvas & Online SVG

Online SVG compatibility allows for unlimited scaling on the web. I'm wondering if website designs could be created in illustrator and exported to a scalable SVG as another option for responsive design. The main problem would be adding interactivity. If all the graphic elements are completely scalable, there would be a infinite amount of basic scaling flexibility. Would this challenge the box/wrapper model?

Top Web-Based Typeface Hosting Site Comparisons

Smashing Magazine has a great post comparing the various @font-face hosting companies. There is a lot of early competitors, but I feel like we will see the list shrink, and less sites can provide something competitive. There are so many options that finding the right typeface hosting site can be a little overwhelming.

There has to be some way to centralize typeface hosting. Maybe we will see that as the use of @font-face and its hosting sites supporting it become bigger.
