Yesterday was Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Apple, as it has done the last few years, was an active participant in promoting the day—a day all about raising awareness for disabled people and the importance of accessible technology. Being the industry leader, Apple plays a big role.
For TechCrunch, I wrote a deep dive story on Apple's activities for this year, tied into the education announcements they made in Chicago in late March. Apple invited me to a small event at the California School for the Deaf in Fremont, which was the highlight of the day. It was at that event where I got an opportunity to briefly interview CEO Tim Cook about GAAD and what accessibility means to the company and to him. The reporting was key, but man, how exhilirating it was for me. It was an amazing experience—one that I won't ever forget.
