Just wanted to throw you quick heads up that I was recently a guest on Chris Coyier's Shop Talk Show podcast!  Here is the topic rundown:

David Walsh is a MooTools lover, recent Mozilla-er, and (for a final “M”), fellow original Madisonian with Chris. David has been writing at his blog The David Walsh Blog for over five years. We talk about (roughly in order):

  • What is a good example of a responsive eCommerce site? (United Pixelworkers)
