(2011-12-22) Khan Academy Javascript First Language

Khan Academy plans on using JavaScript as their Language For Learning Programming. We're in a very unique position as we're primarily aiming to teach students who've been through our previous math and science-centric curriculum. Because of this we can create some rather compelling exercises and projects that never would've been feasible otherwise... We want to go beyond basic syntax tweaks though and find ways of using the language that'll result in an easier learning experience. In particular there are two changes which will likely result in a much simpler on-ramp to learning.
