OpenDirective was founded by Steve Lee and Ross Gardler to enable companies to better engage with academic projects through open development. This was an extension of our work at OSSWatch, a JISC funded service based in the University of Oxford. After Ross left to become part of the Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. team, Steve refocussed his OpenDirective activities back to Accessibility and Open Assistive Technology.
Steve Lee actively participates in various open source and open accessibility communities that include The Apache Software Foundation, Mozilla, Outercurve Foundation, GNOME and Ubuntu. Some of Steve's early open AT projects can be found on his old FullMeasure site. Steve is a member of the AAATE.
Open: To make something accessible or removing an obstacle to something being accessible.
Directive: Serving to direct, indicate, or guide.
