Prototypal Objects at Chicago Javascript

A short into to Javascript objects and prototypes.

Javascript objects are basically maps from strings to values, witha few extras, like dot indexing and prototypes. Prototypes are a way of relating objects so that one, the prototype, can provide default values for another. I find prototypes are simpler and more supple object model, though it may not be as familiar to those experience in class based systems.
