Making things “Work good” is just smart. But the people who evangelize for web accessibility often get a little tangled up in their own pride. They know a lot about this stuff! That is great.

We think we should share the information / instead of just shaming everyone.

Are you in? Let’s organize it.

If you find any good stuff /or have ideas on how to structure it — let’s talk about it! Send it to us in the classroom. : )
