    Nice, informative talk by Ben. He's straight and to the point, and I liked his style of covering the details without trying to boast about anything. It's nice to hear about the big guys like Twitter using libraries like jQuery and Mustache.js.

    It was useful information for a lot of people but I was disappointed by the lack of quantitative results. Most of the information was/is available to anyone who has done a lot of web development. The #! tidbit was really useful.

    Great presentation by Ben Cherry. It was interesting to hear a sample of the performance problems the Twitter team has tackled, how they did it, and how they approach performance from a UX perspective.
