I’ve been meaning to post this link to bugmenot, a page that allows people to bypass compulsory web registration for sites like nytimes.com. Is it legal? I don’t know. But it’s pretty handy.
I also came across this link to a very interesting article on developing sites for users with cognitive disabilities and learning difficulties. The article included a link to a more detailed version of the article, several examples of techniques the authors were writing about, and some great links for further reading.
This is a subject that I am very interested in for both personal and professional reasons. Even if you’re not a techhead, there are some interesting points, and this link from the ‘further reading’ list, which is a first person look into the life of someone with a coginitive disability (Asperger’s Syndrome).
