Something new, web bound?

Awhile back I took a look at 3D, and got to the point of making a small scene where you fly a space-ship around a small station. For a long time I stopped working on the project, as the technology I was using was based on DirectX9 and the non-supported Microsoft's XNA. For those who havnt seen any of this I have attached a youtube of it below;

Just recently I learnt about a new technology - WebGL. Whilst this technology is a highly experimental stage, it offers web-pages the possibility of rending 3D graphics using your GPU. If you do some google searches for WebGL demos you can see what I mean.

I have been playing with some code (admittedly mostly copy 'n pasted unfortunately) to create a small rotating box. Hopefully it works for you (just click the picture below);

I wonder where this could go, at-least this way I can share my experiments with you, rather than just with youtube. Maybe I could create my old project on the web? Is it possible to create a space-sim with it? The next step id like to load in that ship I had.
