Blue Beanie Day Promotes Web Standards!

Matrix FEDs - Blue Beanie DayYou may have noticed an abnormally high number of people wearing blue hats today in your office, on Twitter, Facebook, or around town. Or maybe you just noticed your web designer/developer wearing one around the office and thought it was a bit odd.

If you were wondering why people are wearing blue hats, it’s because today is Blue Beanie Day! What is Blue Beanie Day?

The beanie itself comes from Jeffrey Zeldman’s iconic blue beanie, but the day is an opportunity for people around the world to show their support for web standards. For more info, check out the Blue Beanie Day page on Zeldman’s site »

Matrix’s Front End Developers all joined in the fun today and wore their blue beanies. As you can see in the photo, they are all different shades of blue and a couple are home-made (results may vary), but we are all equally passionate about web standards.

Did you participate in Blue Beanie Day? Do you have a story to share?
