Responsive Design vs. Responsible Design & Performance

As the number of screen sizes, screen resolutions, and device types increase, the web continues to need a more responsible approach for sites and apps to strategize their presence in these multiple places. No longer are top-down or bottom-up strategies considered progressive. As quickly as "mobile-first" came into the mainstream, it's now being pushed out the back door for the now, currently nameless, concept of more complex, yet proactive, device and screen strategy. The point isn't just the interface, it's performance as well. Keep an eye out as different strategies and mental frameworks emerge as we all try to deal with a front-end ecosystem that is only growing in size and complexity.
