  • There's a lot of buzz around responsive design, but is it really the future of web development?

  • Persuasion continues. I'll admit it, I'm suffering from some serious blogger envy on this one. Wish I wrote it. ConversionXL's 5 principles of persuasive web design is definitely worth a read, a bookmark, and a whack of social sharing.
