A Point Of Order

An interesting thing about HTML5 veers off its rails quite quickly:

Speaking of the 90s, Brett McLaughlin says:

Back in the ancient days, when electronica was cool and not called "house music"

First, the term "house music" predates the term "electronica" by over a decade, much nearer to two decades.

Second, the term "electronica" was never cool. MTV and Spin magazine invented it; it never had anything to do with where the music came from.

I hope this guy knows more about HTML5 than he does about music, but I'm not finishing his post.
