Accessibility Myths 2011: a call for accessibility advocates to be more business-minded

Often the publication of 'accessibility myths' articles has crystalised thinking in the accessibility community around the myths we need to dispel to be more effective.

However, many of the current myths articles we are using are rather old.

So, I've come up with a new set of myths for Christmas 2011, designed to challenge some of the accepted assumptions we accessibility advocates hold that may no longer be true.

So, as one of the foremost places where the accessibility advocate community virtually gather, I thought I'd share a link to the blog here: http://wp.me/p1NwIQ-5H.

The blog has already got many big voices in the accessibility community talking - Nomensa's Leonie Watson thinks the blog 'feels like a stepping stone to the next generation of thinking around inclusive design'.

I'd love it if you'd check it out and add your voice to the discussion.

Best regards
