I want to organize/structure/encapsulate all my jquery javascript code:

I have a file "mypage_version1.js" with the following content (VERSION 1):

How can I organize it better?

Does the file "mypage_version2.js" with the following content (VERSION 2) structures the code better than "VERSION 1"?:

I am in doubt, which version is better (both works).

Version 1 is shorter, but cluttered within the file.

What is best practice?

Which is clearer? WHich is easier to understand for someone who didn't write the code? WHich will be easier to maintain later on?

Too many people try to over-think things and just make things complicated for no reason.
