A great follow-up read and the inspiration for AirBnB's [Isomorphics JavaScript]( article. It's goes a bit deeper into the technical considerations of building apps that use the same js objects and methods on both sides of the client-server aisle.

It also happens to be the article that coins the term "Isomorphic Javascript". Thanks for adding me!

Great to have you Charlie! I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot about Isomorphic in the years to come, especially now that React is on the scene and has som many varying server implementations all promoting this way of working. Any other framrworks you know of where it's easy to get Isomorphic behavior?

I'm currently looking at the options for making an Isomorphic app in the .NET space. Currently React.JS looks promising, but was hoping to use a backend server like NancyFx instead of ASP.NET MVC. Looks like there's some promising work in that space.

@indexzero, so the main difference between RVP and MVVM/MVP then is that the business logic is encapsulated in the resource (a fat model), rather than a separate service layer? Or is there no distinction made between whether a resource represents a smart/fat model or a service? Nice job on the article!
