I was especially squeeful regarding Elise Matthesen's: "The Only Thing Faster Than Tonight: Mr. Darkness"
begin quote
Disabled people enrich the world for everybody. Designing for us (with us! by us!) improves things in unexpected ways. (Monocultures fail more easily. It would be a good idea to remember that.) Disabled people are good for a lot more than just our inspiration value, though you’d hardly know it from some people’s approaches to us.

Oh, and besides existing in your imagination, we want to exist in our own imaginations.

There’s some work to do on that, too.
quote ends


The essay begins after the string "Sparkle on, Space Unicorns!"

There is definitely work to do on that. >_> Including on making sure disabled people have the tools we need to create.
