Accessible Twitter Wins Award, Slidedeck

Congratulations to Accessible Twitter which was honored with the ACCESS-IT@Web 2.0 2009 award! Here is the link to the acceptance presentation on SlideShare which was given by Meera Tank at the event in London:

Accessible Twitter presentation for ACCESS-IT@Web 2.0

Slideshare provides a text version towards the bottom of the page, but here’s a better version in HTML.

Cool tidbit: The presentation made the Featured Presentations & Documents section of the SlideShare home page the day after it was posted, and it made it (briefly) to the Hot on Twitter section!
