[games_access] IGDA GA meeting: thoughts from OneSwitch

Just an update on the shirts -- I've sent an email to 
colleagues and Microsoft to see if they will sponsor the 
shirts for giving away at GDC. Then we can have IGDA handle 
the order and payment of those with Microsoft for this phase.

Then, I'd say let's open a cafe press store for people who 
want to order those shirts plus any other shirts we come up 
with, coffee mugs, etc.

I'll set up a paypal link for our site that will explain 
exactly what we are raising money for until the IGDA gets 
the financial stuff worked out propoerly.
