In some parts of the world, May 9, and the launch of the first Global
Accessibility Awareness Day is already upon us. Please take a minute to
forward this e-mail to at least one designer or developer, or someone who
influences the funding or use of technology and who likely knows little to
nothing about digital accessibility at all.


May 9 marks the first Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). GAAD is a
community effort to get people talking, thinking and learning about
digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) accessibility and users with
different disabilities. The goal is to spread basic awareness especially
among the design, development, usability, and related communities who
build, shape, fund and influence technology use and change.

Please take time out of your day to learn more about digital accessibility
first-hand and get involved http://www.mysqltalk.com/participate.html.
Consider sharing this message with your contacts.

With thanks in advance,
Joe Devon and Jennison Asuncion
