Sometimes, I’m a Wimp Web design is a thick-skin sort of discipline. In part, hey - it's the internet: semi-anonymous bolstered computer geeks can and will pick apart your code, your design. Our community has for the large part turned this around, embraced rip-offs, forks, open licenses, pull requests. We know that the collective creativity and brainpower of the community can frankly just make things so much better. Sometimes it gets a little mean, but it's really not a bug, it's a feature.
Accessibility with Cynthia Ng
Accessibility with Cynthia Ng Amanda and I talked accessibility with Cynthia Ng, who has been working as an accessibility librarian and often presents about universal design. Episode 14 is a solid 45 minutes! We touch on legal obligations libraries and higher ed. have for accessible content, practical implementation, fluid standards, low-hanging fruit, and carousels - yuck.

013: T.J. Szafranski Amanda and Michael chat with T.J. Szafranski (@wojowojo) about the redesign of the Lake Villa District Library (www.lvdl.org). We hit on design principles, dealing with stakeholders, the makeup of the web committee, data-driven design, and fantasy football.
