The free software movement, and the GNU GPL, in the age of Javascript

http://steveluscher.com

"In February 2009, I enjoyed the privilege of attending a lecture series by Dr. Richard Stallman, founder of the free software movement, and main author of the GNU General Public License – a copyleft free software license. With his lectures still fresh in my mind, I would like to wrestle with a lingering question, for which I have not yet found a satisfying answer..."

"Get the facts" on browsers

http://maratux.blogspot.com

When I was heading to download IE8 to test its JS performance, I saw this link about "Getting the facts" on web browsers.

[New Year’s Resolutions] List of languages worth learning & One New Language a Year: Smalltalk

http://dustbunnylair.blogspot.com

"The Pragmatic Programmers recommend learning a new programming language every year. I thought for a long time that this was a good idea, but didn't really act on it. Instead I'd dabble in a dozen languages a year. While this has built my intuition as to what various languages are like it has not made me a competent programmer in a new language.

JavaScript: The Missing Manual

http://www.certforums.co.uk

This review has been a long time coming...mainly because I've been having such a good time with this book. That said, the title is a bit misleading. It's not really "The book that should have been in the box" (even if JavaScript came in a box) since a "box of generic JavaScript" wouldn't have come with half of what this book contains.
