Smog Computing

Announcing smog computing! I don't know about you, but I'm heading for the clouds. Enough computing on earth. The bits are much more delicious here in the stratosphere. Up here, a guy can really click on a button. It's different. It's better.

Now to get here, I had to endure fog computing. That was me, in a fog, wondering where everything was. Where are the class hierarchies? Where are the visibility rules? Where are the components? But the fog cleared ... and here I am (cough, cough).

Listen up ground dwellers, Douglas Crockford says, "I have been writing JavaScript for 8 years now, and I have never once found need to use an uber function. The super idea is fairly important in the classical pattern, but it appears to be unnecessary in the prototypal and functional patterns. I now see my early attempts to support the classical model in JavaScript as a mistake."
