Blue Beanie Day Nov 26th

November 23, 2007

Just discovered Blue Beanie Day in support of web standards, as written about here by the Zeldman :

Jeffrey Zeldman Presents : Blue Beanie Day

The basic idea is to wear the Blue Beanie on Monday, take a photo and get it onto the Flickr group as well as using it as your avatar for the day on FaceBook et al.

This is one of my hot button topics and although I don’t rant about it here much, just ask my wife if it is an issue 🙂

So please read the Zeldman article, get involved (on FaceBook …) and have a bit of silly for a day!
