Great things about being blind. Social networking.
Last night, we had a major thunderstorm and very strong winds here. A concert stage colapsed at a near by music festival. I knew that one of my friends was volunteering there and other people I knew too were probably there. I quickly went on facebook to read updates from my friends and also asked if everyone was all right. I must say, although facebook isn't always totally accessible, it does help with things like this. Also, it has helped me to reconnect with old friends. I can publicize storytelling performances on there as well as on twitter and of course post about my blog. More accessibility would be nice and also keeping accessibility in mind from the beginning for these social networking sites, but it does help me to find out about things, about friends, and to update others on what I am doing.
