Weekend Round-Up: Carnivals, Categories, and other Capers
The Assistive Technology Blog Carnival Edition #6: Back to School Issue was released this week. It seems most of the bloggers are still on school holidays so the entries are a bit thin on the ground. The Mac AT bloggers can do better than this at representing ourselves in the blogosphere - submit something at the AT Blog Carnival website. You can submit articles for the carnival at any time - no need to wait until near the end of the month. Just pick a post you've made that talks about computers and disability in some way and submit away - it doesn't have to be a grand masterpiece or anything.
There's a new poll available on ATMac - this time we're exploring what Apple hardware you all own so select as many boxes as apply to you ... I added a box for "other" too, but I don't think I missed anything major. Here's the poll:
You can find the poll on the right hand side of the web page all the time if you want to fill it in later, or want to watch the figures change as other people answer. I'm especially curious how many people have iPhones and iPod Touches because I'm so envious of you! Please leave comments if you have any further poll ideas.
There's another way to browse the archives now, with the new Categories page. There's a link to this page in the navigation bar at the top of the website pages, and it's listed on the Resources page also. The new page shows you all the categories that blog posts are listed in, so if you're looking for just the posts relevant to switch users, to VoiceOver users, to teachers, or any other specific topic, this is the place to go. A big thanks to Afuna for helping me with the behind the scenes code to make the page work - she spent a whole day figuring it out for me after I broke it (oops!) and I was tearing my hair out over it. Thanks Afuna, it's much appreciated.
That's all for now. What happened in your computing world this week?
