Hi all,

In December I had the honor of being on a panel with Vint Cerf where we 
discussed IoT accessibility. He raised the aspect of "reliability" for 
people with disabilities. That is, people with disabilities may need to 
depend to a higher degree on IoT systems and applications, so that the 
failure of these would potentially result in higher disadvantaging of 
people with disabilities. I think "reliability" should be added to our 
list of accessibility concerns for WoT (besides interoperability and 
security etc).

Here is a summary of this panel discussion:
