Jonathan Snook wrote the article JavaScript MVC for A List Apart. I like many of the principles he discusses and found this article to be well thought-out. However, my own views on JavaScript MVC differ slightly, in that the Controller layer should handle all communication between the server and the JavaScript layer. In his example he puts an AJAX call in the Model, where I would recommend only using the Model objects to store data.

In unrelated news, I stumbled across JavaScript NES, where Ben Firshman wrote an NES emulator in JavaScript using canvas.
