So this: "that a user may not want to pay the time or money for those retina images, web fonts" puts me in a quandary. Currently, my Korean language tutorial uses PNGs instead of a font, because I can't presume that people have a Korean font available. However, the images look ugly. I was going to rewrite, using web fonts, but if I read the manifesto correctly, I still need to keep the ugly images and make the site usable both ways, which is significantly more difficult.

+Kyle Simpson I recommend this to all the people I mentor. Rich Trancends (programming) language when he speaks. Few can do it this well, and the (lost) importance of building small functional blocks is part of the solution to the multi-core problem.

The larger your functions, classes, whatevers, the more state they hold, the more state they hold the less you can transport that state around system registers.

Smaller, simpler, stateless pieces of code are the answer. Give em a chance..... :)

This tool is designed to help visualize JS's value coercion corner cases, specifically the ones that are WTFs, and to see what effect fixing some or all of them can have on the landscape of values. For lots more information on this topic, please check out Fixing Coercion, Not The Symptoms and ...
