Gists might sound intimidating because they are associated with Github but
they are a very simplified feature of the tool.


I don't necessarily have a preference for them but want to point out the
easy of use.


I am afraid I have to agree with Neil - one has to learn a completely new
language to use Github.

How about Github? Github has additional functionality other than the
typical repo structure. For instance gists which are basically very simple
text files that are very easy to use and create.

I'm fine with Google docs as well if it works for others..

The problem with other tools is they are hard to use. We won't get the

Hi Lisa,

A good resource, published a couple days ago, is:

Google Docs should be okay for me.

Hi folks

I know a lot if us struggle with using the w3c technology and processes. I
would like to set up s page for feedback and suggesting that we can give to
the w3c so they can make it easier for us and encourage participation.

Would a google doc be a good way to collect this feedback? Is it ok for the
low vision and blind members.

All the best
