A City Website Accessible for Everyone

At 64 Robots we are aware that every piece of information and communication technology that is procured, maintained, developed or used by Federal agencies must be Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 compliant.

Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers to information and communication technologies, make opportunities available for persons with disabilities, and encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.

Let us show you some of the things we do to take care of this in CitySite.

How I Managed to Get Optical Fiber at My House on the Outskirts

Back in 2018 my wife and I decided to move to an old house, located in the countryside and 5 minutes walk from the town, that previously belonged to my grandma. When she passed away it was inherited by my mom who hadn’t have an interest in moving there. We asked for a mortgage so we could do a renovation from the ground up.

But let’s, with hubris, imagine we are among the most advanced civilizations and place us in the 90th percentile. That still means there’s 10,000 civilizations ahead of us, maybe 1,000 of which have discovered how faster than light (FTL) travel.
