The videos were great with regard to content! Oh I would add that i'm 
chair of the IGDA Game Accessibility SIG just to remove confusion of 
what SIG we're talking about (you know, in case someone thinks it's 
the game accessibility SIG of the united nations or ford motor 
company!?!). ;)

I like the removal of all the "ummmmmmms" and swaying that we were 
all probably doing to keep from passing out due to exhaustion. ;) 
yes, that is definitely not me at my most "awake" but what can you 
do? It just shows that we are so committed to game accessibility that 
we exhaust ourselves trying to get the message out!

maybe we'll all have a game accessibility conference at a relaxation 
spa on some nice island and then we'll look more awake in version two 
of the videos? Any votes for location?
