anyone that claims "responsive design" as a best practice clearly has never actually tried to support multiple contexts or devices.

creating great contextual experiences has absolutely nothing to do with markup or css.

@fling As someone working on a sizable responsive redesign, those strike me as fairly broad strokes, Brian. Care to go into more detail?

responsive design seems like the easy hack that attempts to avoid solving the much harder but more thoughtful solution

@beep @fling Me, I think responsive design is important tool, but often: mobile apps/sites need mobile content, not just rejiggered layout.

@fling Agreed, but sometimes a necessary hack. Useful transitional step when people are trapped, eg, by their CMS into single HTML page.

@beep underlying components and content will also often need to change - responsive design by itself isn't enough. /cc @fling

@fling it has it's place, but it's by no means the final solution. 100% agree that the rest of the process is *much* harder. /cc @beep

@bryanrieger Still, there’s more overlap than these “mobile web vs. responsive design” discussions imply. Not a fan of absolutes, me.

btw, we had this debate five years ago and "responsive design" didn't win... but of course only a few were paying attention.

@fling five years ago media queries were entirely academic.

@fling I used to agree w/ you, but I now recognize @beep, @scottjehl, and Riegers, I realize they aren't shying away from tougher problems.

@fling people start working on how to do RWD mobile first. can they pull it off? my guess is yes. Is it best in every case? no.

The struggle will be getting beyond merly "regifting" the desktop Internet experience for mobile. / cc @fling @beep

After all wew have two other screens, tablets and tv, with vastly different contexts we to consider. //@fling @beep

@ktamura I honestly don't get the confusion. RWD isn't design for mobile. It's adaptive layout design. That's it. No? /cc @fling @beep

@ktamura It's making sure your layout doesn't look crap on diff. sized screens. Nothing more. Or am I missing something? /cc @fling @beep

@markboulton 100% agree with "RWD isn't design for mobile. It's adaptive layout design." Put that on a billboard. /cc @ktamura @fling @beep

@markboulton a lot of the debate goes back to the "one web" vs "mobile web". RWD has become the straw man for one web. //@fling @beep

@markboulton RWD assumes that media queries will correctly adapt content to browsers. which it doesn't //@beep @ktamura @StuRobson @colly

@fling Okay, perhaps I misunderstood what you meant by “adapt content.” My early RWD examples are focused on layout, not content.
5:09pm Mar 22nd 2011 via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to fling
@beep sorry, you are absolutely right. I think I conflated the two.
