I attended an event this morning at the Reagan building in DC. It was presided by the Secretary of Labor, Elaine L. Chao who shared the stage with 11 other people including VPs from Verizon, AOL, and American Airlines as well as high-ranking representatives of the Depts of Commerce, Education and Justice as well as various other federal agencies. The event was attended by about 300 people and cost about $50,000 to put on.
To launch the website I designed and that I and many talented developers at devIS built over the last few months. It’s xhtml and CSS based (though I had to resort to tables for the central layout) and it is more than accessible using the “usable accessibility” standards I have helped develop.
I’m exhausted right now and am feeling the let down of months worth of stress from managing this project.
But we did it. And it’s live. FINALLY!
