@clb5590 is here to tell us that there is already an active and robust Blind Maker community that we can collaborate with and learn from.

#ASSETS2019 #CripTheACM
Despite the fact that many maker technologies are inaccessible to develop for, Blind hobbyists and makers have been forging their own #CripTechnoscience to make and build their own artifacts.

#ASSETS2019 #CripTheACM
@clb5590 reminds us that publishing work done with community activists can be extractive and exploitative and we need to be conscious not to profit off of the deprivation and enginuity of others.

I am always struck by the correlation of techno-desire with populations of disabled people who are less immersed in the culture and community of disability.

We find DHH support for sound awareness systems decreases the further into deaf culture you go.

Sometimes this desire is a product of systemic discrimination for having a non normative body. Is the problem then not still the system of oppression rather than the body?

I want us to start deploying technologies outward to systems rather than inward onto bodies. #ASSETS2019
The kinds of techno-desire that comes from disabled people who are not seeking a restoration to a normative body are so much more imaginative and transformative than what we tend to design from this medical "correctional" lens. #ASSETS2019 #FATE4PWD #CripTheACM #CripTechnoscience

A thread about general conference accessibility. Future threads will focus on #ACMSIGCHI and the #ACM in general. Tell us your stories of conference inaccess at CHI and other ACM venues. 1/ #CripCHI #AccessCHI #CripTheACM #CripTheConf
This is a known problem that spans all conferences in all fields. However, that the problem is pervasive doesn't absolve any organization of the responsibility to attend to it. 2/
