Today, November 30, is the 3rd annual Blue Beanie Day — a celebration and visible show of support for Web Standards & semantic, accessible markup. Web designers, developers, and users around the world are sporting blue beanies on their avatars to show their support for doing things right. To learn more about #BBD09 check out:

The book [and the toque] that started it all
Blue beanie day was inspired by the now iconic cover photo on Jeffrey Zeldman’s masterpiece Designing with Web Standards.
DWWS is now out with a new 3rd edition in which Jeffrey — along with co-author Ethan Marcotte — has kept things current and relevant 6 years after it’s initial release.
