Liddy's particular interests in recent years have been the accessibility to all of digital resources and the use of metadata. She has been working as an author and editor for accessibility and accessibility metadata specifications with W3C, the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, the European Committee for Standardization and the IMS Global Learning Project. She was metadata and accessibility developer for several major portals prior to this work. Her lifelong interest has been in new technologies and how they can be used to serve human purposes, what she calls 'convivial' technologies. This interest has led to on-going work with the goal of finding ways to enable a remote Aboriginal community to repatriate its culture. It also has involved a significant amount of work with young people and prototype computer environments. Liddy will present Simple Cultural Organisation System (SCOS) &mdahs; an interoperable cultural taxonomy as a workshop.
