Creating a model of the content world always must be systematic a.k.a. systems thinking.
“The most important thing anyone can do on a web project is find its nucleus. The core, that central piece of content around which everything orbits. Finding that reveals how all of the content fits together. It offers clarity to the relationships between the project’s content and the project’s vision, and will make your process far more successful.”
(Steve Fisher a.k.a. @hellofisher ~ Republic of Quality)
Hardware form factor only is just for one-dimensional designers.
“As people continue to go online using an ever increasing diversity of devices, responsive Web design has helped teams build amazing sites and apps that adapt their designs to smartphones, desktops, and everything in between. But many of these solutions are relying too much on a single factor to make important design decisions: screen size.”
(Luke Wroblewski a.k.a. @lukew)
The silver bullet is not as silver as you think it is.
“Reading blogs out there, you will notice that every attempt to fix a responsive design process is still very experimental: there are as many offered ways as there are blog articles about it! Progress is being made, but nothing is really set in stone at the moment. Knowing that, the most important thing right now is to make sure you ask the right questions at the start of each project, make the right choices, and jump into experimentation yourself with a maximum amount of pragmatism. If you find a good idea to make all of these challenges smoother, please write about it and share your discoveries on the web!”

Keep, hide or move. But are you telling the same story different on the desktop, the iPad or the smartphone?
“Responsive design can have a major impact on your content. I’ll tell you how it works, how it can affect your content, and why you should-and need to-care.”
