Apparently my Google account is going to “transition“ soon. I’ve become a domain administrator for, 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.

Breakpoints and zooming (3 photos)

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.

There is no future proof. But now there is future friendly.

"It’s a call to arms. Or rather, it’s a call to be future friendly..."
• Acknowledge and embrace unpredictability.
• Think and behave in a future-friendly way.
• Help others do the same.
Future Friendly
