Bonne journée du chapeau bleu! Now you know how to say “Happy Blue Beanie Day” in French. Monday 30 November 2009 is the third annual International Blue Beanie Day in support of web standards. Get your toque on, post a photo here, and pop a blue beanie on your Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook avatars to help spread the word. Thanks for supporting web standards.

Join the group to start a discussion!

Group Description

Show your support for Web Standards and Accessibility. Please join us on Monday, November 30, 2009 in celebrating the 3rd annual Blue Beanie Day.

Monday, November 30, 2009 is the day 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. Wear a Blue Beanie and snap a photo. Then on November 30th, switch your profile picture in Facebook and post your photo to the Blue Beanie Day group at Flickr.
