Jay Thornton (wcfay, Collective Bias, slides, all presentations) Responsive design is about building a design that reacts to the screen size of any browser. Answer the question “What if I don’t know what size screen all users will be using?” impacts your design thinking.

Watch the rise and fall of what people change/tinker with (DIY culture) to know where you are getting it right (things that are left alone) and where you are not there yet (things that are modded).

Responsive web design is changing the definition of a “page,” as it aims to address the growing variety of device form factors and locations where content is consumed.

More and more, SSO “out in the wild Internet” is seen as signing into a service with your credentials that are managed by some other company (identity provider). The less information you require to create an account (using data users have already filled out), the less drop-off you have for sign-up numbers. Building your own level of security well is difficult. Focus on what the user is expecting you to need/ask, and work with the data transparently.
