I was at the University at Buffalo interviewing a gentleman for a completely unrelated story when I stumbled upon an idea. Actually, the IDeA.
Primer: IDeA = the Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access.
Officially, they practice human centered design through research, development, service, dissemination and educational activities. Hmm. That's a little too official for me.
Essentially, they want to make the world accessible for everyone. That's "universal" design.
