International Blue Beanie Day in Support of Web Standards

The third annual International Blue Beanie Day will be celebrated on Monday, November 30th, 2009

Thousands of Standardistas (people who support web standards) will wear a Blue Beanie to show their support for accessible, semantic web content.

It’s easy to show your support for web design done right. Beg, borrow, or buy a Blue Beanie and snap a photo of your mug wearing the blue. (Or get creative with Photoshop). Then on November 30, switch your profile picture in Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, (and any other social network) and post your photo to the Blue Beanie Day group.

Posted here on Upcoming in addition to Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=136079874938) since Upcoming has better support for web standards (in particular for events like this one, hCalendar, and hCard)

The photo pictured is from the cover of Jeffrey Zeldman's book Designing With Web Standards, 3rd Edition.
