[dropcap style=”dropcap2″] I [/dropcap] saw this and thought I had to share it. Google have put together an animation called “the story of send”.  Ever wondered what happens when you hit that send button in Gmail?

Take a journey through Google’s data centers by following an email along its path.

I watched this from 2 points of view as a person and as a developer.  As a person it was interesting to see the inner workings of Gmail, as a developer I thought “nice”.

This is another fantastic example of HTML5 and shows what you can do with simple mark up when you add a little creativity.  Check it out for yourself : http://www.google.com/green/storyofsend/desktop/.
