Today, 30 November 2011, is the Fifth Annual international Blue Beanie Day in support of web standards.

Standards keep the web from fragmenting into tiny fiefdoms best viewed with a particular browser or plug-in only. Web standards keep our content portable and accessible across platforms, devices, and operating systems. Each November 30, we celebrate. You wonderful people can help spread the word.

For those wishing to participate:

* Hat color: blue (no specific hex value)

* Hashtag: #bbd11

Here's what you can do:

1.) Upload a blue beanie photo as your avatar on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Flickr, etc. (or add a blue beanie to your existing avatar)

2.) Upload blue beanie photo to this BLUE BEANIE DAY 2011 pool right here on Flickr: www.flickr.com/groups/bluebeanieday2011/

3.) Upload blue beanie day photo to Instagram with hashtag #bbd11

4.) Use your social networks to wish your friends and followers a Happy Blue Beanie Day! Link to www.zeldman.com/bbd/ if you like (it explains Blue Beanie Day and offers simple participation instructions).
