All these larger corporations embracing node.js is an interesting phenomenon. I wonder if it has more to do with how well node.js is suited to hook up all kinds of internal APIs, or if it's just a wave of companies wanting to stay technically up to date all of a sudden.

At least all these companies skipped the ruby wave when it passed.

Yeah, so this is a pretty good lesson. The internet is filled with "haters" and a lot of people will criticize almost anything anybody writes.

If the comments are negative and don't provide value or are rude, your best bet is to simply ignore.

People will talk and comment as if they know everything (this comment included), so it can often feel very aggressive.

Respond and form relationships with your commenters who are positive and provide constructive criticism.

Good article.

Ignore the haters.

I don't remember where I first saw it - possibly on Lamer News.. I started browsing that website every now and then, but since then almost exclusively go to EchoJS.

Created an account 578 days ago - so probably around a similar time.

Looks kind of cool. I've been wondering about what it would take to build something similar.

It would be nice if it was even dumber.

Seems like a comparison to leveldb would be more fair, though.

I don't know if this is a bug or what, but I at least noticed that in the demo ( http://eightmedia.github.io/yass.js/demo/ ) the "small" image gets loaded as well as the large one for me..

It's already started loading when the other thing starts downloading a new version.

It would be nice not to incur extra requests for people - maybe the solution is to simply leave the src tag empty? Though that will break non-js websites..

There must be a better solution?

Not really. Getting a community off the ground usually takes a lot of effort.

As an example, when Reddit was starting out, each of the guys working on it (maybe they were two at the time), had lots of different usernames, and they'd basically make fake conversations all over the place.

That way there were always some people talking so it would be easier for people to join in on the discussion.

I suspect the first step would be for us to just try to break the ice and start having conversations on here.

I at least think the "replies" section is a good add on - I hadn't noticed it until recently.

Some seriously slick UI there.. I might have to check that out. Thanks

Agreed. I come here every day and I love it.

I wish two things were true, though:

1) it was filled with discussions (usually things don't have any comments)
2) It was entirely written in Javascript (for completeness of the universe :)

Cool, feels at least a tiny better. Though a greyed out arrow or something might make sense. I like reddit's up/down arrows, i've you've seen those. has a selected state. makes it pretty clear.
