Joe Clarke gets slashdotted
Joe Clark gets the Slashdot reader interview treatment. This is an extremely interesting but rather long read - Joe answers each question very thoroughly and, as usual, there is plenty of discourse following the piece itself. One of the questions to Joe was about how accessible Slashdot is. Well, he had to be polite, I guess - I have real difficulty with the many levels of commenting and I have perfect vision and motor skills.
One of my favourite comments is this:
This, of course, leads me to my perennial complaint about the Web Accessibility Initiative and accessibility advocates generally: They�ve got no style. They have no understanding of graphic design and typography, and they project this ignorance onto the rest of the world.
One of the key aims of Accessify was to show that an accessible site doesn’t have to look as dull as dishwater. Whether the site has achieved that is up to you, of course.
