Word lookup tool

Bookmarked Wordnik (Wordnik.com)

Wordnik shows definitions from multiple sources, so you can see as many different takes on a word’s meaning as possible.

Looks like the thesaurus might be good, will have to try more words 😉

First phrase I looked up was wine-dark which has always stuck with me from the Odyssey, but they didn’t have it 🤷‍♀️

Resources for learning about accessibility

Bookmarked Accessibility Resources (nicksimson.com)

The links below have helped me in my ongoing accessibility education. Most of these are beginner-friendly entry points to what can be a broad and sometimes complex topic.

A11y is a compact abbreviation for accessibility with 11 (eleven) representing the count of letters between the letter a and the letter y.

😅 I’ve seen A11y before and thought it was leet speak for “ally,” calling out the common problem of 1s looking like lowercase l’s in some typefaces. This… makes more sense 😂

Find good longreads and unearth old articles worth reading

Bookmarked Read Something Great (Read Something Great)

Timeless articles from the belly of the internet.
Manually curated. Served 5 at a time.

Like this idea. Somewhat wary about the curation: who’s choosing the articles (one person, an editorial team…?), do they have selection criteria that considers bias in publishing and draws from reputable sources, what is their background (do they have a political bias or subject focus, if so do those complement my views and interests?), where are they sourcing these articles? No transparency on the website.
