Accessibility and the art of caring for humans

Slides and links

At the accessibility meetup I gave a talk on the sordid history of how people with disabilities have been treated in Sweden. On top of this, many of the tools and words we use actually make it harder to fight prejudice and reach accessibility goals. To change things around, we may have to reconsider how we approach the subject of caring for humans.
