I really enjoyed Derek Featherstone’s talk. A powerhouse of energy, this guy has a mission to make websites usable to disabled people. One website at a time. Accessibility Roolz. I’m not a coder or a designer or anything so I only went to the overview presentation but it was really really interesting.
I loved the fact Derek get’s his inspiration from his environment. His stories of cross walk signs and signals were enlightening and educational. I’ve done the same thing wandering around my neighbourhood, associating certain real life things with online communities.
The logo above takes you to caughtya.org. It’s an online community where the neighbourhood real life community takes fotos cars parked illegally in Disabled spots. They list the number plates etc. Power to the People!
