Why game accessibility matters | Polygon

Becoming an accessibility specialist is a standard career path in many other industries, he says, such as web, tourism, construction and town planning. "I somewhat naively assumed that it would be the same in gaming," Hamilton says. "So I [asked around] about it, about which other companies I could move to and carry on doing the same kind of role."

If you have a knack for quirky gadgets for your kitchen and home, like beautifully designed toilet plungers and top-notch martini shakers, you've got to shop 14th Street's funky home goods store with the so-Washington name of Home Rule.

D.C. locals understood the name Home Rule, but Link couldn't help but laugh at how his non-resident family members didn't quite get it.
