Blue Beanie Day II

Blue Beanie Day

Announcing the second annual Blue Beanie Day. Please join us on Friday, November 28, 2008 to show your support for web standards and accessibility.

Participating’s easy: get your picture taken wearing a blue toque or beanie. On November 28, switch your profile picture in Facebook, Twitter, et al., and post your royal blueness to the Blue Beanie Day 2008 photo group at Flickr. That’s all there is to it!

Blue Beanie Day is the brainchild of Doug Vos, creator of the Designing With Web Standards group on Facebook. Since October 27, 2007, over 4,300 members have joined, representing over fifty countries.

Doug invented Blue Beanie Day in 2007 to promote awareness of web standards. Blue Beanie Day 2007 can be found on Facebook; photos from last year’s celebration are available for your viewing pleasure.

  1. Ahhh the blue beanie comes out again. Mine is a relic of my teenage years, circa 1983… hand knitted. Last worn for the last Blue Beanie day.

    Should be fun. I’ll try to be more creative this year. :)

  2. If you don’t have a blue beanie, buy a University of Michigan one. Should be cheap considering their football record this year…

  3. So, Jeffrey,
    Are you going to blue up your shades-of-green visage at the bottom of this page? Beanie-wise?

  5. All of us our designers & marketers here… we all get this is lame, right? I’ve been an advocate and taught standards for years, I live it, sure, but never a parrot for the sake of it, and I’ve been around enough in the industry from print and up to never suggest such a trend to my clients. We’re not that out of touch, are we?

  6. The ala survey notes were of particular interest. What impressed me were the number of people in the field
    who did not go to school for web design. That seems to be a
    mixed blessing.
