I am working on my course project paper for my Capella University graduate course, The Delivery of Distance Education. While compiling research I was referencing the Web Style Guide by Patrick J. Lynch and Sarah Horton and I discovered yet another reference gem by Sarah Horton, Access by Design. I just had to share it with you. 🙂
I am writing this post from my Apple iPhone as my Apple iPad Wi-Fi + 3g will not be shipping until the end of April. I want to thank the WordPress team for revising their WordPress for iPhone OS App to include iPad support. The iPad will be my publishing tool and I can’t wait to join this exciting phase of the Internet revolution!

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science.
The woman in history I am honoring today is Dr. Grace Murray Hopper. She accomplished so much as an inventor, a brilliant mathematican and computer programmer. She created the original functional specification and the first complier for COBOL. She was also a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy. I learned of Dr. Grace Murray Hopper during my career at Digital Equipment Corporation(DEC), where she was a senior consultant. I started my career as a DIBOL programmer at DEC in 1983. DIBOL is a derivative of COBOL and Dr. Grace Murray Hopper advised the DIBOL product team extensively.
Read more about Dr. Grace Murray Hopper here. We owe her a debt of gratitude for what she accomplished in both her military and data processing career. A powerful woman of great stature.
Thank you Dr. Grace Murray Hopper, I am in your debt as a career professional in information technology.
Yesterday my wife and I attended WordPress Wordcamp NY City. It was great being a virtual student at Baruch College in the Garmercy Park section of NYC.
Our son attended The School of Visual Arts from 2004-2008. He lived on East 23rd Street and for us it was like coming home again being at Baruch College up the block 😉
The event was very well done. My hat is off to Jane, you organized a great day for us. Your hard work truly paid off in what was accomplished. The sessions were excellent. Our favorite session was True/Slant what a cool MU blog are they.
More about WordPress Wordcamp NYC event.
Very eager to hear about WordPress 2.9 which Matt will be unveiling today, what a great community the WordPress crowd is 🙂
