First British Standard for accessibility

On the Web Standards Project site, I’ve announced that Patrick Lauke and I are part of the team drafting BS8878, the first British Standard for web accessibility. Patrick and I are also now the co-leads of the WaSP ATF.

Given that two days ago at a conference, I was mistaken for Patrick, I would like to say this now: there is no truth in the rumour that Patrick and I are siamese twins, joined at the ego. In fact, we’re very very different: I’m short, shaven-headed, portly, uncouth and forty. Patrick’s thirty.
