s12y Means Web Sustainability


Web sustainability has been on my mind recently and I randomly thought of an numeronym for it since those are common in tech.

Much like how a11y is for web accessibility and in8l is for web internationalization, s12y (pronounced stwelvy) makes sense for web sustainability.

Unlike a11y, I doubt I’ll get reply guys saying s12y isn’t sustainable, but I’m using it for similar reasons as to why a11y is used—it’s a convenient tag for web developers that stands out from sustainability in general.

I plan to write a bunch of s12y content so stay tuned for that.

As for who else does this:

That’s pretty much it so far. I hope this catches on.
