Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Now with more Responsive HTML5 Goodness!

I've been doing some restructuring of my personal sites and the underlying servers in the past couple of weeks - trying out some new tricks to get similar results with fewer (cheaper) resources, and at the same time learn about some modern web architecture at all levels of the stack.

I wrote a post that included videos just to test out the "responsive" scaling stuff built into the Omega theme on my Drupal 7 site. Check out my last post, Commercial Applications of Augmented Reality, and then resize your browser window to see what I mean.

If you are viewing this page on a phone, you probably already see what I mean, because the site should be alright on your device. I can't control the fact that many of these sites still use flash for video, so don't get down on me for that.

If you're still scratching your head, you might want to check out the orignal Responsive Design article from Ethan Marcotte, or the latest issue of Drupal Watchdog magazine, both of which define this new system for "design once, run everywhere". You might also hear people bandying about "mobile first". For me, this is mostly an experiment, and my personal site is a great place to do just that.
