Why Responsive Design is the Future (And how to deal with it)
The future is here, and the future is responsive. With the explosion of devices that can access the Web, we have to adjust how we design our websites and our digital products. This briefing will delve into the evolution of responsive design — where we have been and how we got here.
We will examine the progress that we've made so far in creating the tools and methods that allow us to design responsively. We will also take a peek into where responsive design is going in the coming months and years.
The best way to meet this bold future and create better online products is to prototype and build faster. We will talk about how you can do just that, as well as the tools that are within your reach.

Introduction to Social Media at Stanford
Social media offers communicators a rich constellation of tools for connecting with audiences and cultivating advocacy. At the same time, many communicators struggle with developing social media initiatives that advance their organizational objectives. This talk, which is designed primarily for those who are just beginning to use social media, will outline a strategic approach to understanding and developing a digital communications practice.
