Congrats on the decision! I'm sure you'll find it much easier to pick up than you would have expected. Old browsers had me biased against JS for a long time.

As a means of testing yourself, or finding new things to learn, you might try tackling a JS question on Stack Overflow a day once you've gotten to know a bit. Seems like that would be a good, and very tangible way of evaluating your progress or focusing your learning on a particular task.

Thanks for the excellent post. It's a shame you can't make to the conference, but I'm sure you'll be hearing all about it afterward.

Hey Chris! As an OpenID fan myself, I'm disappointed that it hasn't been more successful. On the other hand, I think OpenID really started the conversation about a universal identity for the web, and that's a great contribution on its own. I do like the distributed nature of OpenID, and I'm sad to see it replaced by a centralized, closed service, but I recognize the benefits that come of it.

Maybe we'll have it all one day.
