Today was a unique day. No, not because I had to wake up at 3.30 am to get ready to go to the airport. That's happened a number of times, and it always feels far more crushing that I had guessed at the night before. No, today saw me jetting off to Ukraine, which I was excited about because it is the first time I've ever been to a CIS (ex-USSR) country.
It is always nice to head off to a conference, knowing that for once I won't be away from home for a week, and won't have to travel for an entire day to get there!
I'm currently in a functional-but-pleasent hotel room, getting ready for a great day at the European Accessibility Forum Frankfurt. I'll be speaking on a panel about web standards and accessibility in higher education, talking about what the problem is teaching these subjects at schools and universities, and what we are doing about it in the industry.
the speaker's dinner was great last night, and I had the chance to have some great conversations with some old friends (such as Martin Kliehm, Henny Swan, Chris Heilmann, Niqui Merret), and some new (Steve Faulkner, Marco Zehe, Saqib Shaikh).
So let's get on with the day! I've got a good feeing about this...

So for my latest conference expedition, I headed over to the snowy shores of Iceland for the IceWeb conference, give some talks, chat to some geeks, and see some amazing sights. The conference was great fun, and it was lovely to meet so many really lovely, friendly, passionate people. Thanks to Brian, Einar, Thora, and the other organizers for looking after me and my family so well.
After years of going to great conferences created by web developers, for web developers, I decided to try something a little different. For those of you who don't know, HighEdWeb is the conference for web folk working at educational institutions. I read about it on the WaSP Edu TF mailing list, and decided to give it a try, thinking it would be ideal for promoting the web standards curriculum at, so I submitted a talk proposal and waited. Track co-organiser Stephanie Leary got back to me to say that my talk had been accepted, which was great, so I got prepared myself and got going!
Here is my report on the excellent Fronteers conference, which happened in Amsterdam in September 2008.
