Martin Kliehm and I were both very pleased with our core conversation about WAI-ARIA at SXSW. The idea behind core conversations is to formalise conversations that take place in the corridors.

After Martin gave a brief overview of ARIA, Becky started the conversation by outlining some of her experiences, which prompted lots of good questions. Nobody, apart from Becky, had actually implemented ARIA in their projects, but we were encouraged that most of the participants were making plans to implement it.
All in all, we had a great time, and it was great to meet so many people with a passion for the web. This was my first time at SXSW, but I hope I'm able to go again. Austin is an amazing city, and the whole festival has a great vibe. Unfortunately, I caught a cold at the end, which turned heavy and has only just started to clear.
