@Simon Noted! That's awesome. Thanks for sharing! Your comment is a great example of what I think is important here. Not so much as I'm going to drop what I'm doing and rebuild on Nginx, but that it builds future creative potential. Like, as soon as I can, you can bet money on me playing around with Nginx!
I've been thinking about pagelines' potential and I really feel it lies in iterative design and live user experience.
That being said, your second point on image serving
(plus large .js files) goes hand in hand.
Image serving, if you have 50 images on a page, thats 50 HTTP requests on top of the original page.
I'm starting to think we don't need any images in the design to have a great user experience. I think images might be strictly considered user generated media, be served up via a CDN, and have nothing to do with the core design of a site. Like a tv only has about 100 characters on the whole thing.
