[Athen] Now Everyone Can Be Famous!

An artist once said that the time was coming that everyone would be famous
for 15 minutes. Maybe he should have said 15 seconds or maybe I'm too cynical.
However the overwhelming popularity today of

Blogs, Wikis, Web 2.0 and social networking has thousands of people sharing
themselves, their pictures, their thoughts and prejudices with the
world. The more people who are placing content on the Web, the more the
potential for the use of design features that may exclude people with older
technology or who need to use special adaptive technology. Yes, people
with disabilities want their time in the sun too!

Starting on Thursday Feb. 7 at 2 PM EASI presents a 4-part weekly Webinar
on Blog and Wiki accessibility. While some of us stick-in-the mud types
thought these fads were for teen-agers, this is not true. Schools,
colleges and universities are using them as another educational technology
tool in their arsenal. Schools at least are expected to make their course
content available in accessible formats.
