    1. The WCAG 2.0 is a stable, referenceable technical standard that helps developers of any kind of online content (from websites to text and PDF files), create or check their materials for accessibility.

      The ultimate resource on accessibility directly from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). WCAG 2.0 documentation is the definitive guide for accessibility on the web and is aimed at web developers, designers, and content creators.

      This is an excellent primer on commoning or managing shared resources. By managing shared resources, we can work and move forward for the common good. A reminder that commoning is an effort by many for many. Key takeaway is that it is a fair way to manage and distribute shared resources.
