Crockford on Javascript

The web would be a better place if everyone watched “Douglas Crockford on Javascript”, a highly entertaining and informative series of lectures on the state of Javascript and the web.  With wit and refreshing candor he catalogs what is right and wrong with Javascript and provides the historical context to help viewers understand (where possible) how we got here.  You’ll almost certainly want to buy his book “Javascript: The Good Parts.”  The title alone is a nice taste of Crockford’s plain-spoken style. :-)
