Common discussions over the use of responsive web design to create a mobile optimized website vs. a separate mobile website are sometimes focused on performance and content issues.

For quite some time, I find myself going back to the same social experts to learn and grow knowledge in the industry. Below you will find my list of favorite resources to follow on Twitter, blogs, podcasts and books I have read.
