Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of the day is to get people talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility issues encountered by people with different disabilities. The target audience of GAAD is the design, development, usability, government, and related communities who build, shape, fund and influence technology and its use. That means you.

Read the blog post by GAAD co-Founder Joe Devon that started it all http://mysqltalk.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/challenge-accessibility-know-how-needs-to-go-mainstream-with-developers-now­ and watch an interview with GAAD Co-Founder Jennison Asuncion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rDaw5_PzBU­.

Happy GAAD!
