I wrote about social interaction badges at WisCon, over at my Wordpress blog:

After many delays and much swearing over internet outages, I finally have my report completely posted. You can find my account of AnimeIowa as the head and lone staffer of the Accessibility Department here: Part 1 and Part 2

Now, an importnat question: Would anyone be interested in regular reports/updates on the running of AI's accessibility department? I feel like it could be a useful resource to anyone attempting to start their own such departments, or who want to help others do so/generate interest in getting one started. I also think it might help me run the department better, if I need to keep outlining my actions, and especially if I can get feedback on them. Any thoughts?

Here's a "call for papers" to be published in an academic volume:

Disability and Social Media
edited by Dr Katie Ellis & Dr Mike Kent
Internet Studies, Curtin University


Abstracts are due 15 July 2014

Social media is popularly seen as an important media for people with disability in terms of communication, exchange and activism. These sites potentially increase both employment and leisure opportunities for one of the most traditionally isolated groups in society. However, the offline inaccessible environment has, to a certain degree, been replicated online and particularly social networking sites. Subjects, references to current work in this area, and more in the cut )

Interaction Badges.

More explanations for the history and usage of these badges.

Red/green is not ideal by itself due to color blindness; therefore symbols can be added.
