    Thanks for the feedback, that's good to know

    Is there anything you're particularly interested in reading about? There's just so much material out there, it's a bit hard to know what to include sometimes.

    Framework discussions like Backbone / Ember / Angular / React etc..
    Graphics / Visualization libraries like Snap / d3
    Node examples
    Anything from @jashkenas, @LeaVerou, @worrydream, @jedschmidt, @sstephenson, @DmitryBaranovsk, @paul_irish is golden
    #perfmatters stuff from the Chrome team

    I really like video content too.
