Leo Club of Knox – Trivia Night 2015 for Leo and Lions

Earlier in the week myself and my family was invited to attend to the Trivia Night hosted by the Leo Club of Knox as a guest member held at the Bayswater Senior Citizens Centre last night (Saturday 30th of May).

This gave an opportunity for us to present Hueyify to all the Leo and Lions in attendance. There were other Lion Clubs in attendance from Rowville, Heathmont, Wantirna and others making an audience of about 190 people.

I must say the Club made us feel very welcome last night including everyone who sat on our table who formed our team for the trivia night. It was a fun night even though I was terrible at Trivia. Thankfully my daughter knew some of the answers to make up for my shortfall  - good job Elleleen!

About halfway through the night Huey and myself stood in front of the audience and presented a little about Hueyify, why Hueyify was formed, a little about what we are trying to achieve, how we wish to help others and our vision for moving forward to make a difference to the world. We ended with playing a short informative video showing what Hueyify has to offer.

After the presentation Srisa the Leo Club of Knox President presented a donation cheque towards Hueyify and the work we are doing. We are grateful for the donation and appreciative for their support. Bootstrapping the Hueyify project and constantly seeking funding is the most difficult challenge we are facing and am appreciative for any help. Donations will be reflected in our donations link where donations can be made:

Some photos from the night:

Hueyify Receives Trademark Registration

We are extremely pleased that our trademarks for the word Hueyify® and the Hueyify logo have been successfully registered.

We needed a new word that is a verb that means “the ability to transform Internet content and display it in any way possible that aids your web browsing experience”. As the origins of the idea formed from a blind boy named “Huey” meant we coined a new word by converting it to a verb to form the name “Hueyify”.

The Hueyify logo was designed and created by Kenneth, Elleleen and Huey Springer.

Trademarks are very valuable assets as they signify to the public the branding in relation to the product and services offered. However, for us at Hueyify it means something more as it also represents the symbol for the vision and the goal of the new Internet era we are striving for.

Thank GAAD – Global Accessibility Awareness Day is this Week!

This week is a busy week with a few events on thanks to Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) that is on the 21st of May this year.

Believe it or not – GAAD is now a worldwide event that encourages people to take timeout to learn, engage and discuss issues in relation to accessibility and people with different disabilities. The focus is on accessibility within the digital medium such as web, software, mobile etc. You don't have to be an guru expert in this area to participate as it is all about awareness.

If you are interested in the history of GAAD then it all started with a single blog post written by a Los Angeles based web developer by Joe Devon back in 2011. Joe set the challenge that “Accessibility know-how needs to go mainstream with developers”. You can read the original blog post here: CHALLENGE: Accessibility know-how needs to go mainstream with developers. NOW”.

It so happened that through Twitter an accessibility professional Jennison Asuncion from Toronoto discovered Joe’s blog post by accident and they joined forces leveraging on their own networks to realize the event.

From there onwards GAAD has been celebrated each year. Checkout to see the list of events that you are invited to attend. I’ll definitely be attending to the A11Y Bytes session in Melbourne on the 20th of May. Who knows what new things we would learn this time round?? See you there!
