Usability & Responsive Web

usable website design
Stuff Should Work

Nick is a strong proponent of web usability & runs Usability Blog UsabilityHell.com.


He sees that the open web, with responsive design is the future - not fragmented binary apps.


A single code base & website that runs everywhere (any phone, tablet and computer), has order of magnitude cost, speed & deployment advantages over writing multiple apps, on multiple platforms to achieve the same goals.
