I have ranted about this in a way too

I wonder about how to fix this, I feel like it's a cultural thing.

Sometimes things take off, there are a segment of the web development community who really zoomed in on time to first byte, developing all sorts of libraries and frameworks. I think it's admirable but still often results in pushing a huge amount of data and ends up missing the performance mark overall.

Another example of things that helped change cultures that I mentioned in the article was css zen garden. This website let people show off how good their CSS skills were. But what it really showed was how you can separate presentation from markup which at the time was huge

What's the CSS Zen Garden of web performance? Could that be what's needed?
