Accessibility wars again

Mike Davis lobs a blogrenade at those who think accessibility is about universal access. For what it’s worth, I agree that accessibility is about disability, but think there’s room for us all; the war against idiots like the DTI are more important than internecine squabbles.

Haven’t posted much in a while as have been feeling a bit crap and multiply-sclerotic after catching near-terminal brat-lurgie from my kids, but I did spend a day in bed checking a transcript of the Geek in The Park talk that Patrick and I did – to be published soon. (It’s bloody hard work transcribing; hadn’t realised it before.)

Meanwhile, Matt Machell reviews the accessibility book; as it’s too early to get sales figures from the publisher, it’s nice to know that someone has read it. (Also noticed a review on Godbit.) If you’ve read it too, would you mind commenting on Get the word out to the 99% of the web dev community who don’t read the same blogs that you do and I do…

Matt also reminds us that you’ve got until Sunday night to do a ZenGarden-like makeover in the Pimp my HTML contest. Now, where’s my spare animated gifs …. ?

Buy "Calling For The Moon", my debut album of songs I wrote while living in Thailand, India, Turkey. (Only £2, on Bandcamp.)

Hey Bruce, hope you’re feeling better! Glad you liked the review.

On transcribing, I’m sure there’s a new fangled social networky way of solving the problem of long transcriptions. Many hands making light work and so on.

A few words of advice from a fellow sufferer. I usually find lying on my front and moaning loudly at each movement helps.

Oh no – that’s haemorrhoids.

Get well soon mate.

Alright Brucey? Hope you’re feeling better and ready to tackle important stuff again. Like another ‘veg up the arse Friday joke’. Y’know, that kind of thing.
