The U.S. Access Board announced that acclaimed designer, Michael Graves, was
appointed to the board by President Obama.

This is exciting because Graves is a multi-discipline designer in
architecture, product design, and graphic design. His firm works from the
perspective of the user, and most likely you've owned or used his products
in everyday life. Graves, who became paralyzed about 10 years ago, has also
designed medical equipment and become involved in accessibility.

He's probably the one single person who could resolve the button versus link
debate <grin>.
