My "Mobile Web Performance" Google Tech Talk is finally up, trying to segment Mobile Web Perf into 3 main topics and explain how to tackle each.
Check out the video here: http://bit.ly/sgqeZd . If you prefer a cleaner recording (and no audience questions...), you can watch a webinar I gave with similar content here: http://vimeo.com/32917131 .
Lastly, if you prefer to just browse the slides, they're available here: http://slidesha.re/vnpWSs

In case you've had trouble convincing people that things should look different across browsers, hopefully this'll help...

Delivering speed and delivering a good UX is more important than visual or functional consistency.

Here's an intro to ScriptCraft, a mod for Minecraft that allows you to build things using JavaScript! The JS logo pictured here is available on Github, and I put a PR in to include it with the mod so everyone can enjoy gigantic JS logo goodness.
