Out of the Box Again (Again)

Good things deserve repeating. That’s why Apple West 14th Street last night hosted “Accessibility Out of the Box“ for the second time. This time I was invited to take part in a panel discussion along with Dan Etra, Rethink Autism and Leslie Schect, District 75.

In August I wrote the first “Out of the Box” post, moved by the experience and hoping that the attention to accessibility would continue and grow. It has. I’ve heard from Apple SoHo that they too are getting in on this good thing and will soon be offering Accessibility Workshops (stay tuned).

I see this attention to the needs of special people happening at Apple Stores around the globe. You can help move the process along – go to your friendly neighborhood Apple and ask them to do the same. Get involved in a movement! (No sleeping in tents – I promise.)

This is way too good to keep quiet!
