I came up with the idea, so I guess I’m stuck with it:

If you’re a person with a disability who does not use adaptive technology but also does not use Internet Explorer for Windows (either by switching to something like Firefox, Mozilla, or Opera, or running a different operating system with an equally-good browser), I want to hear from you. You could become the next megastars to be featured on BrowseHappy, the WordPress-run site that popularizes the use of non-braindead browsers.

“Adaptive technology” means something you added to the base configuration of your computer. Bumping up font size using the browser or operating system doesn’t count. Deafness is a disability as far as this project is concerned even if you maintain it is a mere cultural difference.
