One of the reasons I like working with Peachpit and New Riders is the opportunity to write articles for their web site. It allows me to wrestle a bit more with ideas I had during the writing of a book, or sometimes new nuances that I’ve thought of afterwards (because everything is changing all of the time, right?).
My latest article for them went up last week, and as with all of my writing, I already have things I’d add or change (gah!). In fact, I’m not even sure I like the title, as the article is less about making your first mobile design “perfect” or “successful” and more about just starting to deal with mobile at all, and then continuing to deal with it. (and I didn’t title it)
There’s other stuff I’d clarify more, too, like “not all content is equal”. I still think that’s true, but I also think that content parity is important. But this isn’t necessarily much of a paradox. My point about content not being equal, really, is that as you decide what to display in mobile versus hide or shorten, are you actually making decisions that should circle back and impact your “full size” version as well? Uh huh, that’s what I thought! =)
Oh well, plenty more to write about as these ideas all shake out and evolve, right? Thanks for reading.
