@jeffsmith accessibility and usability are equally important, but they are not the same. @dylanbarrell @thereisnocat @karlgroves @vavroom @jeffsmith accessibility that's not "technically accessibility" is called usability by most @dylanbarrell @thereisnocat @karlgroves @vavroom

Have a question? Ask (just don't ask me via twitter LOL, I am rarely here)And so yes @megarush1024, a bit like Talmud study, but W3C tries hard to make it accessible @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @karlgroves @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves And every W3C-er I know cares deeply about the web, and wants to help people @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves W3C work can be intense some times, but also rewarding. @MichielBijl is also correct about average volunteer hours/week, which for me is ~10 @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves The mighty @stevefaulkner also set up a slack channel https://t.co/AErYLv8mEu @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves W3C also provides platforms for Community efforts here: https://t.co/T1RvBazycU @MichielBijl @detonite @stommepoes @megarush1024 @karlgroves There is no magic to WCAG, just understanding.

@karlgroves It would have been a lot more helpful if you had pointed folks to where they can go roll up their sleeves and help. @karlgroves ...and dumped it on WAI/WCAG WG instead - it's their problem, "not my circus, not my monkeys". It weakens your argument. @karlgroves Nobody is saying WCAG is perfect, but you didn't issue a call to arms to come and help fix that, you just complained... @karlgroves anyone can comment, loads of folks do. Change = work, and waiting on someone else to volunteer gets predictable results @karlgroves it isn't magic, it's hard work, done by a few individuals. Criticize all you want, but what have you done to try and fix it? @karlgroves If the concern is valid, then it needs help being addressed - volunteer help. Too many people think that the W3C does magic @karlgroves Saying "The WAI should leverage these resources..." presumes there is something/some-one to leverage - they are all volunteers. @karlgroves Pro Hockey players don't make great football critics is all I'm saying. Drive-by criticisms often have little value. Is all. @karlgroves opinions & criticism is fine but arm-chair critics come cheap. Actually making rubber meet the road is harder but more valuable @karlgroves there is thinking & there is doing - both are important. Too often folks just point the finger, complain, & walk away.Dontcha just love when somebody says something is broken / needs fixing but stops short of actually stepping up to the plate to do the work?
