As an Alabama fan, I usually enjoy a good ole' Auburn shit show. But their hiring of Hugh Freeze is a whole new lower level of trash.

They are gonna waste a couple more years with him and not only continue to tarnish their football reputation, but now they're going to tarnish their reputation with their students.

The founder of Post said today that the company is explicitly *not* focused on accessibility. Disappointing to read something like this in 2022

Unfortunately I have to stop actively working on #Metatext for a while due to health issues. I really wish I could implement Mastodon 4 features and squash every bug, but it's not possible for me to do so right now.

I know the app has become important to a lot people, so I'm open to a new maintainer who can carry on its values of privacy and accessibility taking it over if there's interest and a fit. Email info@metabolist.org if you (or your organization) are interested

Is anyone interested in writing a last minute blog post about HTML (a11y, usability, security, or performance) for the HTMHell advent calendar? Any length and topic.
I kinda still need 8 more articles because way more people than expected didn't deliver. 😬

Deadline is December 10th.

Accessibility Folx, someone might email you and ask you to sign this petition: change-dot-org/WebAccessibility. Look at the bottom of the page, there is a link to overlayfacts-dot-org which promotes the use of Overlays. Do not sign it. Shady stuff.

Fellow higher-ed web folks, are we building institutional mastodon servers? What sort of engagement do we need in this space?

Hi everyone!

I've been working in and for higher ed since 2007. I used to do a lot of WordPress but now I mainly specialize in front-end web development and accessibility. I work for myself and work primarily with universities and agencies.

I love to run and eat tacos and run more so I can eat more tacos. I live in upstate New York in the lovely city of Rochester, or as I call it Narnia. I'm currently learning how to ice skate so I can play ice hockey.

Tell me about yourself!

Back in April I was taking ice hockey classes and I injured my arm (outside of class). After a couple steroid shots and monthssss of physical therapy, I’m back to normal and want to work on my ice skating before I go back to hockey. Just had my third ice skating class. It was great! My confidence is gaining and someone worked with me on my stops. I’m finally getting the hang of “digging” into the ice. It’s so weird to me since I grew up skating on roller blades. I can’t wait to skate again! 🧊⛸️❄️💙

Proud of @mor10 for all of the great work he does to improve the web and to empower others with education and resources. He gave me a demo today of the new Github Codespaces and wow. It's super impressive. I can't wait to try it out with some of my projects.

I'm also grateful that he's such a lovely human and friend.
