How do we implement parallel downloading?

What does Guil Hernandez mean by parallel downloading? I presume that simply by using CDNs to load, for example jQuery, we are already accomplishing this to some degree...but what else is he recommending?

It sounds like, if we have multiple style resources (of course we should really only have 1-2 after concatenation), Guil Hernandez is saying that we should actually place these resources under different domains - not within our directory structure.

You answered your question yourself: "[W]e should actually place these resources under different domains." Treehouse uses uploads.teamtreehouse.com for some pictures, for example.
