Scott Jehl:

Faster networks should fix our performance problems, but so far, they have had an interesting if unintentional impact on the web. This is because historically, faster network speed has enabled developers to deliver more code to users—in particular, more JavaScript code.

Ugh. Jeremy Keith comments:

The longer I spend in this field, the more convinced I am that web performance is not a technical problem; it’s a people problem.
