Those interested in hearing more about this - I make a podcast where I interview a famous disabled person while we journey together on public transport, which is as ridiculous as you’d expect: podfollow.com/how-we-got-here-

(insert spotify joke here)

And after a long and stressful day, having to spend this half hour waiting in a freezing station rather than at home taking care of myself really takes its toll.

RT @KatiePennick@twitter.activitypub.actor
The hold ups and delays I experience due to the inaccessible/unequal transport system have a knock-on effect, and very quickly accumulate.

I now have to wait over half an hour for the next train. It’s not much, but it adds up.

RT @KatiePennick@twitter.activitypub.actor
I’m watching my train leave in 5 mins and I’m not on it because I apparently didn’t arrive early enough for staff to get the ramp.

I’m late because the bus I was on let everyone (20+ people -full bus) off before deploying the ramp for me.

Everyone on that bus made their train.

Interesting project.

Also funny that the color change on scroll is giving me headaches. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Like big buttons and I cannot lie You
Other brothers can’t deny That

And a rounded button in your face You

Sensei Says - a tip from @RavenAlly

Bigger is better for interactive elements like buttons, links & form fields.

Bigger is easier to see.

Bigger is easier to read.

Bigger is easier to tap.

Thanks @pgrucza@twitter.com @_aaronbnb@twitter.com @terrillthompson@twitter.com @MarcoInEnglish@twitter.com @gerardkcohen@twitter.com for confirming my assumption that for single videos using YouTube embeds is OK. (The q was if I need to do more than just a straight embed for one single quick video.)

The singular "they" is older than the singular "you." Only in the 1600s did singular "you" start pushing out "thou" and "thee." nyti.ms/2R0WTJY

TIP: For the more advanced JavaScript writers out there, Drafts 17 introduced new script options to support async operations (async/await, Promises, etc.) in Drafts actions. A few details: forums.getdrafts.com/t/asynchr

Learning from Sesame Workshop's Louis Mitchell how they created Julia, the first Sesame Street character on the autism spectrum. Incredibly inspiring.

So, how accessible are YouTube embeds? What’s the consensus here?

No. Your friends are not your therapists. Your friends are your friends. twitter.com/jeromepva/status/1
