Web Accessibility Presentation 20170224

Will Jayroe speaking at DevNexus 2017I presented Web Accessibility: Making Websites Usable for Everyone at DevNexus!

Web Accessibility is for everyone – it means making Websites flexible enough to meet a broad range of preferences, needs and situations. This includes not only individuals with visual, auditory or physical disabilities but anyone with limited Internet connectivity, temporary disabilities (e.g. a broken arm), or changing abilities due to aging.

Thanks to everyone who attended!

What if Aristotle…

Wow… Aristotle really did a number on us (i.e. the collective Judaeo-Christian-Islamic history of thought). I wonder what the past 2,300 years would’ve been like if he had gotten on Alexander’s ish list.

Presenting at CONNECT.TECH in October

Well this is exciting! I have been accepted as a speaker at @connect_js in October! I will be presenting an original topic:

ExD: Designing for Exponential Change – An exploration of basic Design Principles and the forcing functions of Exponential Growth, Miniaturization and Dematerialization. Application of these concepts will be demonstrated using a custom set of “Method Cards” that can be sorted and discussed to inform and inspire research and design.

As in Art and Music and Fashion, the pendulum swings. There’s a critical conversation happening in culture, business and politics: meritocracy vs. imposed equality. Neither are actually possible.

Welcome to the mediocrity of enterprise software, domestic beer and dollar store aesthetics.
