This is an idea about how to tear down the inaccessible
of the Internet and tech world and build it up again, this time,
I'm not advocating violence here.
I can sort of understand how regular old terrorism happens:
Europe has all the money and there are
these giant swaths of
decreasing areas of money across the globe going towards the
It's like someone set a money bomb off in England and the far
places only received a few sprays of shrapnel. And then history is
just basically people who didn't get hit by the money bomb trying
get closer to England.
But now you can just get on a plane and fly to England or Belgium
and leave your godforsaken country behind which is what people
and will be doing for the next few hundred years, while
intermittently blowing thewmselves up when there's a hiccup in
process, until everyone is all mixed up.
But accessibility is different.
I can sort of see blowing shit up if you are not educated and don't
have any money, but I can really see blowing shit up if you are
and people keep putting shit in your way on purpose.
So this is an idea for an accessibility movement that uses
strategies, but not violence, to shame perpetrators and heighten
So where terrorists strive for collateral damage in terms of
lives, the accessibility terrorist movement would shame or hack
anyone associated with an inaccessible webpage.
So say you have an inaccessible webpage about a celebrity
Rather than trying to assign responsibility between the website,
programming language, coder, device manufacturer, operating
system, search engine, news organization etc, the accessibility
terrorists would just shame or hack the celebrities themselves,
because they were associated with an inaccessible website.
The end result will be the distribution of money and attention.
And it takes at least 2 kilowatts of power to get the movement
going, and anyone who can use a bicycle to make it happen is
welcome to. How's that for a Procrustean Shoehorn?
