Pinned post

What is ? Every Tuesday (in the Northern / Western Hemisphere) I will be posting an image and asking you how you describe the image to someone who couldn't see it.

Why this is so important? Because everyone should have a fair chance to see what everyone does, and it's also used on websites (if the image can't be loaded).

You can reply with your alt text and I'll give you feedback to improve it.

(This was started on Twitter and I want to continue it here)

I will continue to post on social media like normal. Not because I don't know what is going on in the world, but to provide a small distraction.
No matter what you are feel now, or anytime in the future, know what your feelings are valid.

"When I was 21, the cool thing to be was famous on Instagram. Now the cooler thing to be is a mystery. Anonymity is in."

"As a journalist, I’ve found it frustrating. In the past few years, more sources have been asking for anonymity on principle—not because they are afraid of specific or likely consequences, but because being named just doesn’t seem worth it."

What do you think? Would you rather be anonymous online or use your real name?

I read somewhere that August 10th is National Lazy Day. Many of us tend to be so busy that we don't tend to relax, which is something we should all do more often.

How would you rely what's in this image if they didn't have it in front of them?

If you are thinking about buying a domain, where do you search to see if it's available?

There's whois, going to the place you buy your domain (domain registrar) and many other ways.

August 2nd 1870 was when Tower Subway (which is the world's first underground tube railway) opened in London (England, UK).

How would you describe this subway related picture to someone who couldn't see it?
You can include how would describe it as a reply.

Why would you do that, because the web should be more accessible and this is an excercise on writing better alt text.

Huge thanks to Elena Saharova who posted this picture on Pexels.

"cached content is no longer shared between domains [....]

This means the primary benefit of shared public CDNs is no longer relevant for any modern browsers. [...]

It's best to avoid them wherever possible, primarily by self-hosting your content with a caching reverse-proxy in front, to cheaply and easily build high-performance web applications."

July 26th is National Disability Independence Day, which is celebrated in the US with commemorates the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

How would you describe this image to someone who couldn't see ift?

This reminds me of @kev and how he probably feels on his motorcycle, does this comic remind you of someone else and why?

July 19th 1843 was the day that the steamship SS Great Britiain was launched.

How would you describe this ship image to someone who couldn't see it?

Could you be locked out of your digital life?

It may seem like a silly question, but what if you lost your computer, phone, wallet, and everything else in your house (except for people), how would you get back in?

@Edent wrote about this hypothetically happening to him, and I encourage you to give it a read at shkspr.mobi/blog/2022/06/ive-l

Have you thought about how you would get back into your digital life if you had to (and didn't have anything)?
