“Now you can enjoy our high-quality journalism on any digital device with a browser — always in a clean, reader friendly format.” So proclaims the responsively redesigned Boston Globe. Not only was the venerable paper’s digital reworking inspired by Ethan Marcotte’s book of the same name, but Ethan himself had a hand in the redesign! Responsive design: it’s not just for blogs any more.
Last year, in partnership with An Event Apart, Mix Online debuted the 10K Apart contest. The challenge was simple: build the best application you can with no more than 10K of code. The contest was a smash hit, reaping 367 entries in less than a month and 11K (sorry) tweets in less than a year. This year’s contest ups the ante with more than a nod to Ethan Marcotte’s Responsive Web Design. Without further ado, say hello to 10K Apart: The Responsive Edition.
