Hi All,

An article on Web Accessibility policy in Europe was recently  
featured on the social news web site Digg.com.

http://digg.com/design/The_EU_will_*require*_Web_accessibility_by_2010.

Digg is a news site where users can submit stories.  Users can watch  
for stories as they are submitted.   They will then vote on whether  
they think they story is interesting.  If they do, they "digg it."   
People can also comment on stories.

If the story gets enough "diggs," it will make it onto the home page  
of the Digg.com.  Stories that make it onto the home page of Digg.com  
get  lots of traffic.  Web development articles and tutorials will  
frequently make it on to the homage.

For the web accessibility story, you can follow the different  
comments that people make.   From the comments, you can tell there  
are a lot of misconceptions about web accessibility as well as lots  
of opportunity for education and outreach.

Digg is very popular, one of the top 150 most visited sites on the net.

If people find great web accessibility articles, Digg.com would be a  
great place to submit them.  If the article makes it to the home  
page,  A  LOT of people will read it.

Sincerely,
Justin Thorp
