"The performance principle for scalability is simple: if you want to scale, then you have to serve web pages quickly."

That's plain wrong.

"If you want to scale you have to minimize resource consumption" is better.

(Of course, resource consumption includes CPU cycles as well.)

    Thats wrong too. I don't care how much I minimize my resource consumption, if the users aren't getting their pages quickly it doesn't make a difference weather or not I tell them "but the resources aren't maxed!"

      I can't think of a single thing I learned, but it was fun nonetheless. :)
