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.

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

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

@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

@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

@beep sorry, you are absolutely right. I think I conflated the two.
