Hi all, just a reminder that the next SIG meeting will be on 
Monday, June 20 on MSN messenger at noon (EST). Email me at 
accessibility at igda.org with any questions about logging on 
for the meeting. 

We'll continue the talk about the survey we're going to 
administer in August that will help us get a start at 
figuring out some better gaming accessibility demographics. 
This will be the largest survey undertaken so far on the 
topic so this should be a real help!

I'd also like to talk for a few minutes during the meeting 
about forming some working groups. We have a lot of projects 
going on and it might be more efficient if we kept the 
general meeting as a place for everyone to check in with the 
whole sig while smaller "working groups" met at other times. 
That way the different projects get time to hash out 
details...which we always run out of during the monday 
meeting.

Other news: 

* Kevin Bierre is writing up an article for Gamasutra on 
Game Accessibility and will give a plug for the SIG there. 
Hopefully that will help us get more industry people 
involved! 

* Everything's all set for the HCII conference in Las Vegas. 
To my knowledge, only Kevin is going -- correct?

* We have the book proposal back in our hands to edit and 
give back to the publisher -- we got some great positive 
feedback from the publisher (yay!)

Hope to see most of you tomorrow!

Michelle
Chair, Game Accessibility SIG
