Yay Factor: Accessibility 2.0, MetroShips, Coverville and the solar eclipse

  • Accessibility 2.0 – yes, it’s back and I’ll be talking about accessibility beyond the desktop together with Veronika Jermolina (AbilityNet) and Damon Rose (BBC Ouch).
  • MetroShip – my boyfriend and I are seriously contemplating buying a barge and converting it into a houseboat by putting shipping containers on it. Metroship, while not built of shipping containers is proof of what a livable beautiful space you can make it.
  • Coverville – shout out to Pixeldiva for tweeting about this. I struggle to find the right music to work to and this podcasts of covers is spot on.
  • The solar eclipse – The pictures speak for themselves.
