Accessible Web Developers on Facebook

Posted January 10th, 2008 by Mike Cherim

Facebook isn’t exactly an icon of web accessibility, but it doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for Accessible Web Developers, and that’s exactly the reason for this post. A couple of days ago I started an accessible web developers group — borrowing the name from my top-ten Ma.gnolia group — and I’m inviting you to join. And I’m also asking that you extend the invitation to your like-minded friends and colleagues. Already there’s an all-star membership, so you’ll be in good company.

But why, someone asked me yesterday. Here’s my two-part response:

1) Unite accessible web developers because there is power in numbers. United we stand, divided we fall. Can you tell I’m from the US?

2) To get web accessibility into yet another crevice of the web. Everyplace it goes there are bound to be those to will become attached. Like a big snowball.

— That was me

I hope those reasons hold water and you, dear reader, will drop by and sign up. It costs nothing.

    Good idea, Mike. I must admit I have never had the time or the inclination to look into Facebook in much detail. But it seems much more legitimate now that you have invited me!
