Authoring Critical Above-the-Fold CSS

The following is a guest post by Ben Edwards. I saw Ben tweet about a simple Sass @mixin that allowed you designate bits of CSS as being "critical" - the idea being to load that critical CSS first and defer the loading of the rest of the CSS until later. A clever idea, and one that is getting very popular in the web performance crowd. I thought I'd get Ben to introduce these ideas in more detail for us.
