Episode 91: Responsive Web design

responsive

We discuss responsive Web design. Should all websites be responsive? But first, what exactly is responsive design?

When is it the right time to make a responsive Website? What about making a dedicated mobile website, tablet site and desktop version instead of going with a responsive website?

We also discuss Nate Silver building his dream team of data journalists at ESPN.

Episode 86: Nate Silver returns

The kind of mug shots we show around here.

The kind of mug shots we show around here.

We discuss the return of Nate Silver.

His first piece since leaving The New York Times appeared on Grantland, part of ESPN’s digital presence. Despite being about the government shutdown, it did not appear on ABCNews.com.

We also discuss Google downgrading mugshot websites in search results after The New York Times came asking about the practice of charging people money to have their mugshots removed from the Web. Why did Google step in now and change its search results when it hasn’t done so in the past for some other ethically-challenged websites?

Episode 79: Chromecast and Nate Silver going to ESPN/ABC News

We discuss Google’s Chromecast, and whether or not it’s worth picking up.

It is afterall $35, so it really can’t hurt to pick it up. But if you already own a Roku or an Apple TV, what does this device do that your device doesn’t do? But, again, it’s a $35 streaming TV device. It’s the cheapest way to get Netflix to your TV.

We also discuss Nate Silver going to ESPN and ABC News and why we think that happened. This is a big move.
