Accessibility rumours, overflowing the stack, Fronteers, Web Directions East, Full Frontal and Cambridge Geek Day

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Yesterday I caused a stir in the German accessibility world by publicly announcing that I won’t speak at German accessibility conferences any more. This made a few Germans and others (sneakily using Google to translate the blog post) wonder if I will cease to do any accessibility activity (speaking, coding, teaching). I leave it to Mark Twain to answer that:

The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.

I will not stop doing accessibility work – I just will not speak at purely German accessibility events any longer.

With that out of the way, just a quick update on what I will be up to in the next few days in case my output flow will cease a bit.

  • Tomorrow I will speak at the first Stackoverflow Dev Day in London, England. Then I will be off to Cambridge on Friday for another one and the last European one in Amsterdam on Monday.
  • On Tuesday, there will be something like a geek dinner with Molly Holzschlag, PPK and me entitled Sex, Food and JavaScript (don’t ask).
  • On Thursday and Friday I will be at the Fronteers Conference and fly back to London to change to a plane to fly to Tokyo for Web Directions East where I will be a booth babe for the Yahoo Developer Network.
  • After that there’ll be Full Frontal and Cambridge Geek Day and then I will be very busy with explaining the Yahoo Application Platform to a lot of partners until Christmas.

Full plate, eh?
