Josh Clark: Nielsen Wrong on Mobile

I just read a great article by Josh Clark critiquing Jacob Nielsen’s stance on mobile Web sites. The idea is that a large number of people use their phone as their primary way of accessing the Web. By dumbing down the mobile site, removing content, and making it hard to find that content on the full site, we are making their lives harder, not easier. He also made a strong point about how the same content viewed on different devices should have the same URL, and I think I’m coming over to agree with that point of view.
