Apparently my Google account is going to “transition“ soon. I’ve become a domain administrator for cloudfour.com, but it is terribly confusing. The help information tells me to click on things that don’t exist.

It sounds like my entire Google Plus account may get wiped out as part of this transition. Such a terrible experience.

We need help spreading word about our workshop in New York next week. We made the description too cute and people didn’t get it so registration has been slow. Oops! So we need help to make sure the event is a success. Thank you in advance.
Lyza and I are giving a mobile web workshop next week at WebVisions NYC. We're preparing an outstanding workshop for web designers and developers who want to learn how to build for mobile devices....

If you let content define where the breakpoints are in a responsive web design, aren’t you making assumptions about the text size and/or zoom level?

FWIW, we provide an example of letting content define the breakpoints in our book, and it makes much more sense to us than selecting breakpoints based on popular screen sizes (e.g., 320x480) that may change in the future.

I honestly don’t have a good answer for this. It is one of those things that has been in the back of my mind, but I’ve been a little afraid of opening what seems like a can of worms.

For the record, I don't think I've built a responsive site yet that uses pixels for the media queries: every site I've built has had breakpoints dictated by the content and when that content is primarily text, ems make sense.

In this episode of This American Life, they interview a person whose job is to be a human paintball target. The guy says his job is “just like web page design. When you go in, you can do whatever you want.”

Second part of the segment is here:
http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-august-18-2011/world-of-class-warfare---the-poor-s-free-ride-is-over

Our country is being held hostage by crazy people.
If there's one thing the rich have learned, it's that class warfare is hell.

It's really cool how steady its head is as it's screeching to a halt (pun partially intended).
