On Friday, November 28, standardistas all over the world shall unite to celebrate the 2nd Blue Beanie Day, an informal event promoting web standards and accessibility. Participants are invited to wear a blue beanie—like the one Jeffrey Zeldman wore on the cover of Designing With Web Standards—then snap a photo of themselves and share it with everyone.
You don’t even have to own a beanie though. It could be some other headgear variant, or even a Photoshop mockup! The idea is to bring people together and have fun by doing something outside of coding standards-compliant markup.
Join the Facebook event page and the Flickr group and post your photos there.
