Web Axe has been blogging and podcasting for over four years now! Since September 2005, Dennis Lembree has been contributing to the web accessibility community with blogs and podcasts about techniques, news, and events around development of accessible web sites. Dennis started Web Axe as a member of the Detroit Podcasters Network. Co-host Ross Johnson of 3.7 Designs joined the following year. Dennis and Ross are also the co-founders of Refresh Detroit. The site continues to grow in popularity, and the number of RSS subscribers has doubled over the last year. Thank you readers and listeners!
Coming soon, a great interview podcast!
