A long overdue blog

Hello to Accessible Planet and Planet Mozilla.

Thanks for all the … interesting … blog posts over the years.

I’m Aaron Leventhal and I’ve worked on accessibility in Mozilla-based browsers since 2000 — for the first three years that actually meant working on Netscape, and now it’s Firefox.

These days I work at IBM to help make Web 2.0 accessibility possible, and enjoying watching the open source accessibility community grow. And way back in the last century I actually worked on Braille publishing software. Yep, I’m one of those “accessibility experts” you’ve heard about, but don’t hide! I’m not a curmudgeon about these things. For me it’s just about helping people make it all work.

I will dicuss open source & web accessibility, with a special emphasis on Web 2.0 and AJAX. Knowing me, I’ll also have a few crazy ideas along the way.

    Hi Aaron,
    I think all posts that appear on Planet Mozilla appear as full posts, not partial posts. Any chance you could change the feed you sent to Planet.moz to be full posts. It also makes viewing in a feed reader easier, especially when offline.
    Cheers, BlueMM
