Blue Beanie Day Web Standards

Don’t forget Blue Beanie Day!

The Fourth Annual International Blue Beanie Day in support of web standards will be celebrated this Tuesday, November 30. That gives you just over 24 hours to …

  1. Take a self-portrait wearing a blue beanie (toque, tuque, cap) and upload it to the Blue Beanie Day 2010 pool on Flickr.
  2. Add a blue beanie to your social network avatar on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc.
  3. Write a web standards haiku and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #bbd4 for your chance to win web design books from Peachpit and A Book Apart in the Blue Beanie Day Haiku Contest.
  4. No blue beanie? No time for Photoshop? monkeyfy.com or face-sticker.quodis.com to the rescue!

See you on the internets!
