Responsive is the future?

Today sees the 20th anniversary of the web being made freely available to all, and thus the beginnings of the Internet revolution. Without this step, life as we know it would be very different today. The first website is still live today at its original URL and one thing that struck me is that it is a responsive site.

There has been much debate about how the future of web design will be responsive, and that we should be moving towards responsive design for all sites, whereas this shows that the web was originally responsive and provides further evidence that we were the ones forcing it to be a fixed width medium in order to make it easier for ourselves.
