Responsive web design is a core skill today, but it isn't everything. Aaron explains the advantages of an adaptive web approach.
This concept has sometimes been called RESS, but regardless of labels, it involves making decisions on the server that determine what should and shouldn’t be sent to the user, so that nothing is sent that will not be used.
Justin Fowler, co-founder of AudioPress, offers valuable insight into what the future of search and curation may be, by providing a relevant and sound pattern to look at: music.
He writes on TheNextWeb:
"Context is key for music, and that is where services like Songza and Beats Music are picking up tips from FM radio. These services are essentially using algorithms to help people discover new playlists, instead of discovering new songs. This allows for a marriage of both technology and human curation."
Accordingly, as time goes by, I expect to see search engines increasingly highlight and direct searchers to quality curators, hubs and on-topic collections and specialized resources, rather than to individual, one-topic-only pages.
Search engines will increasingly be gateways to curators and content collections rather than to individual tracks and pages.
This will be particularly true especially when you will query a topic, a theme or interest, or better yet, a musical genre. In all of these situations, where you want to dive, discover and learn more about a topic, it is much better to be offered a selection of playlists, compilations, collections or hubs covering that theme rather than a specific song, product or artist.
That is, search and discoverability of content will rely more and more on intermediaries that will take on the load to make sense and organize in the best possible way, a specific realm of information (it can be a music genre, or the analysis of a biological topic) rather than - as it happens today - provide a linear list of individual web pages that is supposed to cover that topic.
If the music industry, is, like other times before, an early indicator of how things will work out in the future, it makes a lot of sense to expect that the future of content discovery and search will be increasingly in the hands of curators, greatly helped and supported by sophisticated, but hackable and adjustable algorithms.

5 Things I've Learned About Chasing Your Dreams Huffington Post (blog) I've had the wonderful opportunity to speak with a number of people who have stopped "working for the man" to chart a life and career path true to their authentic self.

"Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential."
New research on mindset. Definitely worth a read!

good points to remember
Set above and within a natural stone wall which runs along this length of the Greek Rhodes coastline, Villa F is a design by Hornung and Jacobi Architecture for a holiday retreat. There’s a strong emphasis on comfort and minimalism throughout the dwelling with markedly few distinct rooms and a lack of internal walls.
Hornung and Jacobi Architecture opted for a lightweight plaster coated timber framework for its superstructure, as opposed to the typical tendency towards brute force and concrete cantilevers in modern architecture. A key aspect in the design brief was that it should be possible to cool and heat the building relatively quickly in order to reach a comfortable temperature as soon as possible. This was achieved through the use of lightweight components in its construction, and the incorporation of a mechanical roof vent to encourage convectional ventilation to occur throughout Villa F.
This is totally cool and confirms to what I see in good design--minimalism, clean lines and emphasis on simplicity.

With all the time and energy cartographers spend preparing maps, it makes sense that they would want to protect their investment. One of the ways they do so — although they don’t always admit it — is by including 'trap streets', deliberate mistakes added to maps to catch unsuspecting copyright violators.
