Blog TOCOne key tool in my toolbox is that I download just about every session for Mix, TechEd, etc.  I then put them on my Zune, and listen to them while doing dishes, yard work, walking to the bus, or while on the Stairmaster.  I listen to some of them more than once if they are particularly good, and on occasion, some session is so good that I watch it on my computer and make notes.

The presentation at Mix 2010 by Douglas Crockford on JavaScript/EcmaScript is fantastic.  I had heard folks talk about the functional programming underpinnings of JavaScript, but I never really understood until I listened to his session.
