At this month's Houston NetSquared meetup we'll be talking with Sharron Rush about the technology community's role in making Web sites accessible and barrier free. As Executive Director of Knowbility (
http://www.knowbility..., Sharron is constantly working on new and innovative solutions to transform Internet technologies to be more accessible to the community at large - including the elderly, the disabled and everyone else! Accessible Web sites and online technology is good for everyone. Knowbility is a wonderful online accessibility promoter and supporter, with events like the Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR) -
http://www.knowbility... - and fantastic accessibility training. At this Houston NetSquared meeting, we'll be giving away a copy of Sharron's book 'Maximum Accessibility - Making Your Web Site More Usable for Everyone' (check it out online here:
http://www.amazon.com... ). Don't miss this great conversation about making the web an accessible place for all. What are you doing to make the Internet barrier free? What questions do you or your organization have about building an accessible Web site? Join us! The Stag's Head Pub (www.stagsheadpub.com) is a great meeting place for us with a nice back area for us to chat, great food and drink and, most importantly, WIFI!! So feel free to bring your laptop - visualization is good! For more information, see

    Really nice to converse with people face to face at such a philosophical level rather than at a code level about the Web.

    I probably left with more questions than I had answered, but that is a good thing. I'll be looking at my Web sites in a new way.
