Blogger with Cerebral Palsy Coins Phrase: Disability 2.0 – Nothing about us without us

Filed under: Virtual Book Tour — by Glenda at 11:22 pm on Wednesday, August 29, 2007


Canberra’s Parliament House

Overnight I was back on the Learjet, flying to Isabella Plains, a suburb of Australia’s capital city Canberra. This trip to the land down under I am meeting with Ruth Ellison, an interaction designer who is extremely passionate about creating accessible and useful user experiences.

Today we chatted about living with cerebral palsy, our common passion for web accessibility, and a new term I recently coined: Disability 2.0 – “Nothing about us without us”. Please join us.

Tonight I board the Learjet for the United Kingdom – I’m training for the life of the rich and famous!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a cafe mocha. Thanks kindly.

Glenda, that’s a phrase we use a lot in the deaf field, quoted by Roz Rosen–Nothing about us without us. One of my favorites to use!

Thanks Karen for letting me know someone else coined that phrase first. I won’t claim it as my own then. I’ll check out Roz Rosen’s work.
