2.0 was inspiring to me.
Following the requests 
and the talks I developed 
and started a few cool 
things.

“the net force on an object is equal to 
  the mass of the object mulKplied by
  its acceleraKon.”
Right now, we are a mass, 
but not a force. 
We don’t move in one 
direcKon which means we 
have not much impact.
Last year’s Accessibility 
2.0 was inspiring to me.

What are the reasons?
We should not be grumpy
A smile gets us further.
The social web problem.
Last year we bitched a lot 
about the inaccessibility 
of Web 2.0
Nowadays we do embrace 
the social web as a way to 
deliver our message, 
right?

It is all too geeky!
430,000 registered users ‐ about 
                         70,000 in a day.
                         3.6 million pageviews...
The real 
issue is a 
lack of 
honesty!
Branding holds us back...

Keeping our eye on the 
brand leads to a lack of

So why does it work for a 
company like Yahoo?
Is it because of amazing 
developers there?
passion + talent = accessibility
We have the knowledge, 
all we need is to show the 
passion and tell the world.
You don’t need to know 
everything.
But you need to listen, 
collaborate and 
communicate!

Accessibility should be 
like “Made in Germany”
1887 the UK introduced
“Made in Germany”...




   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Made_in_Germany
...as a measure to name 
and shame foreign 
products and convince 
people to “Buy BriKsh”
Only a few months later 
“Made in Germany” 
established itself as a 
quality indicator and it 
sKll is.
Accessibility can be the 
same ‐ if we sell it right.
So join me in ge[ng off 
your bo*oms and saying
“I will make the web more 
accessible, starKng now!”
