John McKenna has a disability known as Arthrogryposis since birth. An electric wheelchair is his mode of transport, so naturally he has many views around the challenges this presents . John has been using WordPress as a useful tool in elevating the conversation between both the abled and disabled communities and with government and he is coming to WordCamp to tell us some of his story and how it is that WordPress has proven invaluable.
Using WordPress as a vehicle to deliver diversity and empowerment is working for John & Yan
John is a Disability Commentator & has been using his WordPress blog with relevant plug-ins to engage with his audience & share his views on the rapidly changing landscape of “Planet Disability” via his blog
Yan, a Project Partner of chinesekangaroo.com.au along with John use the Chinese Kangaroo blog for empowering and educating people from China living in Australia. One of the key features of this site is incorporating Mandarin translation as required along with other Chinese targeted social media options.
