You would think, 3 years on, a digital industry would have evolved and understood the fundamental reason why change is necessary. But it hasn't. You will find that 'responsive design' still sits in the mind of designers and is still an afterthought, even though it is a website for mobile.

There has been much talk about "Responsive Web Design"(RWD), a term coined by the beloved Ethan Marcotte, and in short it's a principle that encourages our industry to stop building websites like it's 2003. With the plethora of web enabled devices kicking around we are at a point in time where traditional methods are failing fast and new processes must be put in place, for everyone's sake.
That is quite a mouthful, but it defines the direction the web development industry is taking. Make no mistakes these buzz words are not a passing phase but rather doctrine of which websites in this day and age must adhere to if they wish to deliver the product promised.
People often look for the 'magic tune-up' that will make their system perform four times as fast by tweaking just one little setting. The truth is, present-day UNIX derivatives are pretty well adjusted straight out of the box and there is not a lot that needs to be done to make them perform optimally.

On Thursday, 18th March 2010 I became a very proud and humbled father to my first son Oscar. Weighing in at 3.375kg (7lb 6oz) and measuring 50cm he came into the world at 4:06pm with full credit going to his patient and very brave mother.
On The Ball (OTB) has been a passion of mine for over 7 years now and there has been many challenges faced and overcome making it the game it is today. One of the prominent decisions that has hinged its success is finding a reliable host who caters for the technologies OTB utilizes.
This years World Cup hosted in South Africa is destined to be memorable for a variety of reasons. Firstly that New Zealand have qualified along with neighbouring Australia, something that was previously impossible due to Australia now placed in Asia!
I'm really looking forward to the group matches and seeing the likes of NZ playing the likes of Italy and Paraquay. With Australia in with Ghana and Germany that group is set to go off as well.
I signed up to Last.fm just the other day, meanwhile the world has been listening to tunes pumped out by their incredible service since the turn of the century! As I manually typed all the artists from my iPhone into my favorites listing I began to explore just how accessible their service was.
