Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Jay, who has muscular dystrophy (which he doesn't let slow him down) spent the last 3 years making this dream a realization with little to no money to spend on site development. Jay took on the task himself and put together a fairly comprehensive site and understand this Jay is unable to use a keyboard but rather uses voice recognition software and a trackball mouse to get anything done on the computer . But it still lacked a professional 508 Accessible framework. Then comes Geek On Wheels who believed in Jay and his dream and garnered a deal with him to build a site that would use the latest in php and opensource e-commerce systems along with a forum, chat and a classifieds ad system so Disabled Online users can post their items for sale and sell them without ever giving a nod to ebay...
So whether you are looking for baseball or football or hockey jerseys, or gourmet chocolates to send your lady friend(s) or need information on arts and entertainment for the disabled to government websites and disabled accessible websites to get information on laws and statues regarding disabled users and their rights. or whether you yourself are disabled or not or friends or family of a disabled person or persons or just want to chat or get an account on his forum, making Disabled Online a favorite in your browsers is well worth it.
Don't believe me? then check it for yourselves!!!"
The web is a great place for free political speech. It is also a beautiful informational tool. But if you are looking for total anonymity, the internet is not great. It does, however, give people the feeling of total anonymity and that is the perfect environment to see people as unfettered, morally unrestrained, emotionally spastic versions of their public face.
