"We need to recognize that it is none of our business why our audience is using the web the way they’re using it."
If you’ve been treating “people with disabilities” as an edge case for your websites, consider this a reckoning. Web accessibility means that everyone can use the web. The job of a web designer isn’t to question the configurations, devices, and tools that users bring to the table; it’s to rise to the challenge of making a site work for anyone who wishes to use it.

This is all too meta for me: Marie Antoinette as Kim Kardashian.

At Hive Chicago hackathon, youth leaders share how they deal with data, and pledge to create an evaluation tool for members.
