Take your knowledge of javascript to the nerd level

Today I stumbled upon a really good presentation by Douglas Crocford about JavaScript.
When I started I was just looking for the correct pronunciation for JSON (javascript object notation). When I finished I had learned a few mind blowing things about JavaScript.

Here is a teaser to encourage you to watch the video.
Curly brace style REALLY IS MEANINGFUL in JavaScript.
Look at the following two snippets (from the video):

This might work well in other languages:


   {       ...    } 

This works well in JavaScript:

    block {       ...    } 


The downside to all this: I have a lot of curly braces to go change – uggg.

Here is where you go to take your JavaScript knowledge to the nerd level.

Oh, if you didn&apost watch the video, Doug Crockford pronounces JSON the same as the name "jason".
