The RNIB in the UK did a very thorough analysis of Windows 8 in terms of accessibility.
I’m attending a New Mexico Women in Technology event this week. This event honors women in technology. Since I was a winner last year, I get to attend and helped with the judging for this years winners. The speaker this year is Valerie Plame Wilson, but the real emphasis is on the fantastic women who receive recognition as women in technology during the event. The New Mexico Technology Council also gives several scholarships to high school girls during the event. All in all, an excellent thing.
