Unfortunately, I have a conflicting obligation, so I can't make it this
time. I would love to participate, since I believe that we have something to
contribute, but that has to wait until next time.

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!
