what's hot what's not

Accessibility - the Good News

Building Accessible WebsitesBuilding Accessible Websites by Joe Clark is in print and is available. Joe, who we have interviewed here, is probably the best authority on accessibility, breathing today. Having 'dive into mark' Mark Pilgrim as technical editor is a plus.


I am waiting for a copy and will write a review when I get it.

Accessibility - the Bad News

Judge Patricia A. Seitz has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Access Now and Robert Gumson against Southwest Airlines for violating the ADA regarding the Southwest claim that their website is not a public accommodation. Fine.

In sworn testimony, "Southwest reports approximately 46% or over 500 Million dollars of it's passenger revenue for the first quarter of 2002 came from their website." I wonder how many guys with trench coats and pockets it would take to make those kind of sales figures.

Southwest may have won in court, but my money will be spent with others.

It's Time to Stop the Music

I want you to stop buying Commercial Music and going to Movies for six months.
Because if You do not cut off their money they will cut off your Internet access. They have already killed Internet Radio.This is not about the short term pain of your favorite musician, they have already been screwed so royally that it is amazing that you can even recognize them.
