Welcome!

Hello, I am Kevin Fjelsted. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Technology is one of my main interests, as the blog’s title suggests, and I have worked with numerous products. Blindness makes me especially interested in accessibility and gives me an opportunity to find strengths in my struggles and triumphs.

Technology, accessibility for blind people, learning, family, and faith are some of the topics that interest me. These topics will be what many of my posts are on, but the main purpose of this blog is for you to know me better and hopefully for you to respond so I can meet you. Thus, we will build a community and learn from each other.

Palm Pilot Replacement

Guest Post From Monica Willyard
Hi. My name is Monica, and I’m doing some work for Kevin to give his blog some great new social media features. Since I have to publish a post to make sure everything is working well, I want to tell you something about Kevin that he’ll never tell you himself. 🙂 Kevin is a fair businessman, and he’s also a person who educates his business associates.
