Hi all!

I live in the US, specifically North Carolina.

On the accessibility side of my career, for the last year, I've worked for AT&T as an accessibility specialist in their creative experience team. I previously worked for several years for the state of NC at a research center where we got a lot of Federally-funded projects, so I learned accessibility on the job there and ran with it. I did a video training series for lynda.com in 2007 titled Web Accessibility Principles, and I'm on the Adobe Task Force for the Web Standards Project.

On the CSS side of my career, I've written two books, Stunning CSS3 and Flexible Web Design. I've also written a number of articles, done conference presentations, etc. I've worked as a web designer and HTML/CSS developer for about 12 years. My blog is www.zomigi.com<http://www.zomigi.com>, and I'm on Twitter @zomigi.

Best,
Zoe

Hi all, thought I should get the ball rolling, it would be great if we could all introduce ourselves and provide some details of what each of us think we can do to improve the available information about how CSS affects accessibility and what can be done.

 I live in the UK and work as an accessibility consultant, I have been doing this work for the past 10 years.

I jotted down some starting points here: http://www.w3.org/community/cssacc/2011/10/13/what-next/

We should also think about appointing a chair, if anyone wants to volunteer please do! If not I nominate Jason Kiss.
