The Best of the Internets





Winning Technology With a Social Purpose

This is about tech for social good, which is awesome, but one of the most interesting bits is buried near the bottom and concerns us as web designers:

According to the Office for National Statistics, in May, 27% of disabled adults had never used the internet, compared with 7% of non-disabled adults. And last month’s report by the Extra Costs Commission found that part of the reason disabled people typically face £550 in extra living costs is due to the lack of ability of many of them to shop around online. Too many sites are not accessible to those with disabilities.
