A few weeks ago, we picked up a Black Santa inflatable from Walmart. $15. Decent price, figured why not? They had TONS of them on the shelf.

Went back to the same Walmart over the weekend — sold clean out.

Representation matters, even for fictional characters.

I can’t do a one hour meeting with 5 minutes of worthwhile content. People need to deal with stuff in async, paired and bring us all together only for something worthwhile.

Soziale Netzwerke werden jetzt zu Denunziationsmaschinen umgebaut. Freut euch, wenn ihr eure erste polizeiliche Vorladung bekommt, z.B. weil weder der hochqualifizierte Melder bei Twitter noch die Polizei Ironie verstehen. bit.ly/2OWfMgg

I hate saying this, but I fundamentally believe that news journalism is broken. Let me give you an example:

I once talked to an airline tech team. They had implemented a work around for an accessibility issue I found. It was better but far from optimal. From the outside it looked like a quick HTML change. From the inside, it was a change in multiple layers of business logic.

When writing CSS for a HTML table, keep in mind that tables can have <th> headers across rows (<thead>) AND down columns (<tbody>).

Use "thead th” if you want to design for the table head.

Here’s a great writeup from W3C WAI: w3.org/WAI/tutorials/tables/tw

You cannot cheat your way to accessibility. It is hard but rewarding work.

Pleased that tech companies such as @sitepointdotcom are making their web site accessible using an accessibility overlay sitepoint.com/ 🤔
Simply turn "accessibility mode" on to get all that alt text goodness, especially for <a><img></a> links!

We mourn the death of Jim Thatcher, a pioneer in the field and dear friend of Knowbility. Our thoughts are with his family. twitter.com/LFLegal/status/120

RT @dboudreau
I’m so sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. He was one of the very 1st people I butted heads with when I got involved with at an international level. He quickly became a distant mentor of mine.

I trust his legacy will live on, with the mission many of us pursue daily. twitter.com/lflegal/status/120
