I’ve always loved listening to music, watching music videos, and playing musical instruments and singing. Music is a big part of my family’s life and we all really enjoy it.

So I blogged last week about technology and how it changes people’s lives. I’ve now read an article on Wired.com which talks about the team of people that makes Facebook accessible to disabled people.
