I just found this video on reddit.com, Breaking the 1000ms Time to Glass Mobile Barrier.

It's a video from a Googler - Ilya Grigorik - on delivering applications that render in under much less than 1000ms, not just time to first byte.

This is particularly interesting because he's got a lot of great data points on user tendencies given slower experiences, and on experiences on the dektop vs. mobile, etc.

I don't expect this is all completely new to anyone, but I certainly learned a few things! This is a nice talk if you like performance, and could definitely inform some of the discussion on resource pipelines, mobile, and javascript and web applications.
