In launching the 2010 edition of Accessibility 100 – a series of 100 easy-to-implement, free and inexpensive tips for improving accessibility for people with disabilities, I am borrowing a powerful idea from blogger extraordinaire Liz Strauss.
You are invited to share exactly 25 words on:
What does accessibility mean to you?
Why only 25 words? To drill down to the essence of what accessibility truly means.
As Liz explains (with a few minor changes), “Here’s how you might go about it:
- Look for an insight or piece of wisdom about accessibility.
- Write a sentence about it.
- Count the words you have written.
- Edit the sentence until you have 25 words exactly. Notice how your idea changes as you edit and how your feelings change with each rewrite.
- Add a picture if you can.
- Post your 25 words on your blog (or in the comments below) by January 31st.
- Link back to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section (or both to be sure!). I don’t want to miss yours when I compile all of them. “
I will compile all of your words into some kind of creative PowerPoint video.
To ensure the project’s richness in perspectives, insights and wisdom, everyone – with or without a disability, impairment or adversity – is welcomed and encouraged to share. Are you in?
Accessibility 100 is a series of 100 easy-to-implement, free and inexpensive tips for improving accessibility for people with disabilities. This is a community project. Feel free to leave your comments, questions and ideas for future Accessibility 100 posts.
