Hi all,

Making the list more private re. the Game Developer Conference presentation 
is a fine idea. Wondering if it's too early to think about promoting our 
attendence to the big players in January? ELSPA, CESA, ESA and the KGDI? 
(more on these at http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/4/games/4campaign.htm ). I'm 
trying to charm NAMCO's Barrier-Free group into attending too. Wish me luck.

Hoping to get something together with Eric Walker on physical gaming 
barriers and potential solutions, with some mention of controllers, software 
and one switch games. Will be a spoken presentation with a slide show of 
images that many in the audience will not have seen before (I hope!).


Not sure if you've all seen new member Robert Florio's fine web-pages on 
accessible games: http://www.robertflorio.com/games.html  - Includes a great 
video demonstration of the QuadControl mouth and head operated controller in 
use, as well as game reviews for people using this type of controller. 
Superb work! Welcome to the group Robert.


Couple of articles published on switch gaming this month. One in a 
left-field UK music magazine "Plan B Magazine", and a page on the splendid 
"Way of the Rodent" retro gaming web-magazine:
