    because of the “new” keyword?
    (just clarifying)

    @joe-crick
    Are you asking if it's easier to understand Object.create because of the "new" keyword?
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    the proto pointing back because of the “new” keyword (sorry..had the beach ball of death for a bit)

    @joe-crick

    I'm a bit behind in my js skills...That is I'm probably not intermediate. Do you have any suggestions for background reading I can use to get caught up?
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    @johnhitz I’m basic…so that’s a great question :) (not even intermediate) :)
    John Hitz
    @johnhitz
    I've been following, but info to beef up what your teaching will be great! Thanks!

    @Madelene
    it seems like “this” is directly related to proto/prototypes?
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    this = keyword
    this and new?
    I shouldn’t drink potfulls of coffee whilst trying to understand :)
    yes
    John Hitz
    @johnhitz
    Isn't this where the methods and data of a function live? Similar to self in python?
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    Thanks (I’ll check out that blog)
    so is “this” a placeholder?
    is window the default then?
    John Hitz
    @johnhitz
    Thanks for your time
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    thanks @joe-crick ! clapclapclapclapclap
    ok
    an abstract placeholder :)

    Maybe i didn't understand the goal of test. http://jsfiddle.net/2ghhrzf4/3/ I need just to call person constructor or set it in NEW constructor? playing whole day but understood nothing:)
    Alexis Abril
    @alexisabril
    @OlgaMaraeva You’re actually pretty close in that example
    you don’t need object.create, but I like where your head’s at

    This line here:

    constructor.applay(ist, Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 1)

    Typo in apply ;)

    You do need to invoke the constructor and this line is actually correct, but you can do less. Think about what apply() expects as arguments and what you have available to you.
