Users at WWW2013

These were mostly ‘throw tweets at ML/AI’ and wait. Social Web UI was the only viable option.

WWW 2011 – Trip Report [#accessibility #a11y #w4a11]

By virtue of being hosted in a growing developing country, bubbling with innovation, this year’s theme aims to highlight the need for expanding the horizons of the Web to become all inclusive and pervasive, reaching out to every human life.
