There are a lot of ways to deal with designing for multiple screens and devices, and all are not created equal. Just because you end up with a site that's responsive, it doesn't mean you took the 'right' path to get there; the ends don't always justify the means. Let's explore those different paths to responsiveness and why some lead to more compromise than others. We need to rethink our design thinking so our work will be more successful in the real world. It's a challenge, but hey - if it were easy, it wouldn't be so awesome when you get it right.
