Hello,

I wanted to let folks know that I have just created a group on the professional
networking platform LinkedIn called Web 2.0 Accessibility Forum, whose focus
is, as its name suggests, on all topics relevant to Web 2.0 and
accessibility. Like it or hate it, Web 2.0 technologies are gaining momentum in
their adoption and use in place of HTML alone to build rich internet
experiences. The objective therefore is to bring together users with
disabilities who have experience interacting with Web 2.0 applications;
individuals working on accessibility efforts to make aspects of Web 2.0
accessible; and the broader community of Web 2.0 developers and champions to
learn about and collaborate on ways to make these applications as accessible as
possible.

The URL for the group’s page is http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/1605077 -
Note that if you are not a LinkedIn member, you will have to register. I
should say that as a screen reader user myself, LinkedIn is one of the more
accessible professional networking platforms out there, which is
partially behind why I decided to house the forum there.
