"You Might Not Need JavaScript", Tim Thomas

As the web becomes a more vivid, interactive medium, page payloads increase dramatically. Images, templates, and behavioral plugins add needed richness, but also code complexity and, yes, file size. Fortunately, there's an unusual way to add some great interactions to your web apps without bloating your pages: with CSS!

Our meetup will be held at the Evernote Office again, and I know some people had a tough time getting here last month because of some weirdness with Google Maps. We are in the University Park building just north of 32nd St on the I-35 Frontage Road. Hopefully this picture helps :)
