This.
 
Finally the painfully obvious is revealed. HTML5 or native? Yes. Use what makes sense.
The debate actually precedes the first app store to hit volume.Should you build mobile apps in native code on each platform, or should you build them in cross-platform code, such as HTML5? Increasi...

By default, should the #WYSIWYG editor render <br /> or <p> when pressing enter?

For the record, I agree.  I just wanted to make sure there wasn't another perspective I wasn't considering.  Thanks all.

Doing some weekend research on in-line editing.  There are a handful of products doing some impressive stuff in this area.  It's come a long way since I looked at it a couple of years ago.

Yes, that was one that I looked at.  Also CKEditor is making progress as well - http://ckeditor.com/demo#inline

Desktops/Tablets merging in #AdWords.  Having a website that adapts for any device becomes even more important. #ResponsiveDesign

I'm thinking about navigation styling in Sitefinity.  What are your thoughts about the current experience of styling our navigation widget?

There's a difference between site creators and content creators. We're trying to serve them too but in different flavos. They can't all fit into the same box.

I just checked out the Google+ IOS app.  It's excellent!  I wish their web-based interface worked the same way.

Question: How do you help customers choose between a Responsive Website, a Mobile Website and Mobile App?

I would definitely recommend going responsive if you're starting from scratch. If you already have an existing desktop site and don't want to rebuild from scratch (or don't have the time or budget), then adding a responsive mobile channel on the m. subdomain is a good stop gap until it's time for a redesign.

Regarding apps, I would still say 'wait and see', unless you are a media company and your content is your primary source of revenue. Then, 'proceed with caution' :)

Which Sitefinity widgets do you find most challenging to use in a Responsive Design context?

I'd say navigation... we are switching from a top nav to an off canvas nav for mobile resolutions. Unfortunately all hand coded for the moment (tied to SF Sitemap of course though)

Oddball question -> When was the first Web CMS released?

Yep, that's a loaded question and it assumes how you define a CMS. I have a 1999 text that talks about almost every type of information system imaginable (document management, decision support, knowledge management, expert system) but not a single mention of "content management system". Yet, we know in the mid to late 1990's there were companies such as Interwoven around.

I found this 2000 Gilbane Report that talks about the emerging CMS and whether it's a buzz word or something that may be around for a few years: http://gilbane.com/artpdf/GR8.8.pdf . It loosely describes a CMS in much the same way that Ron describes it in his post.

"Content management" as used in IT circles is a relatively recent term that has emerged coincident with the web. It is used in many ways to refer to many different things. "Content management" is used to describe everything from Microsoft's Front Page to Interwoven's TeamSite to Akamai's EdgeAdvantage, and those are just a small sampling of products where, at first glance, it seems like an accurate moniker. Content management is a term that causes intelligent users and vendors to scratch their heads.

Finally, check out CMSWiki's history page: http://www.cmswiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=HistoryOfCMS . It refers four different era's of content management systems starting in the mid-1970's mainframes.

Loved it. I had a pork chop and my wife had trout. The outdoor patio was incredible. Would definitely go back!
