What an incredible start to today

This morning I’m sitting here in bed as I do virtually every morning: Working on one of many programming projects. Sometimes they’re “official” projects and sometimes just experiments. The big difference today is that I’m in San Jose, CA for Open Web Camp. About 45 minutes ago I spoke briefly with my wife. As I […]

Affirming the Consequent

Today I came across a post by Simon Harper titled Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools Only Produce a 60-70% Correctness which is essentially a response to my earlier critique of a seriously flawed academic paper. I submitted a response on Simon’s site, but I want to copy it here for my regular readers. One thing that […]

Looking forward to CSUN 2014

I’m currently wrapping up the rest of my work for the week and getting ready for the annual pilgrimage to San Diego for the annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, otherwise known as “CSUN”.

Since then, admittedly, I’ve had little time […]

Yes, actually, it may be you one day

I could fill a book with transcripts of frustrating conversations I’ve had with executives, project managers, and developers who – to put it politely – exhibited an amazing mastery of stopping a constructive conversation in its tracks by offering up excuse after excuse about why they couldn’t buy or develop an accessible ICT product or […]

Important Note: Join A11yBuzz Mailing List to Discuss Accessibility Body of Knowledge

A mailing list has been set up to discuss the possibility of creating an Accessibility Body of Knowledge. Those interested in the list should go to the A11yBOIK Info Page. Once subscribed, you can get access to the list archives. Most notably I’d like to bring attention to the following message I just posted: I’d […]

So many to thank for a great time at CSUN 2012

On the plane home and can’t stop thinking about what a great time I had this year at the CSUN conference. Giving thanks to those who were generous enough to spend time with me would be far too long for a 140 character tweet, or even a series of tweets. In no particular order: Mike […]
