Interesting list of confirmed/busted JavaScript performance myths gleaned from the jsPerf and Browserscope projects (which allow the general public to contribute JavaScript test cases that are then run "in the wild" on various browsers--what a cool idea!).

"...it's silly and irrational to complain that a framework isn't good at completing task A, when it was only ever designed to do task B. Node.js is extraordinarily good at what it was designed to do- so don't rant that it's bad at something else."

Interesting to see that Paperless Post and Etsy are using Node for metrics collection...

This might be interesting to anyone thinking about using Node or MongoDB in production... Fog Creek (basically the same guys behind Stack Overflow) is using both technologies as part of their new task management product, Trello (which is great, btw).

This is one of the best "Intro to Node.js" and "Intro to Server-Side Non-blocking I/O" presentations I've seen, given by an objective, experienced enterprise Java/C/C++ developer who isn't getting caught up in the hype. Even if you don't care about Node you'll benefit from learning about the drawbacks to the multi-threaded servers we've all been using for years and how single-threaded servers (Node being just one implementation) can be faster and more efficient. You also learn about how streaming and HTTP chunking works, something every web dev should understand. Lastly, it's a totally honest look at not just the good parts of Node but the parts of it (and JavaScript) that suck.
