The Paciello Group
Patrick works as Accessibility Consultant for The Paciello Group. In a previous life he was a Web Evangelist in the Developer Relations team at Opera Software ASA, and before that he worked as Web Editor for a large UK university for nearly 10 years. He’s been involved in the discourse around Web Standards and Accessibility since 2001, actively speaking at conferences and participating in initiatives such as the Web Standards Project (WaSP). An outspoken accessibility and standards advocate, Patrick favours a pragmatic hands-on approach over purely theoretical, high-level discussions. „I’m an idealist by nature, but a pragmatist by trade. I’d never class myself as an expert and I certainly don’t have all the answers…I’m just an opinionated guy eager to find real world solutions ‚where the rubber meets the road‘.“ His personal corner of the web can be found at splintered.co.uk, paciellogroup.com, webstandards.org.
