I can coordinate with you a little more about what we need to do together
Ben for your event.  Sorry for the misspelling before I am from Glen Burnie
Maryland.  I am very passionate and feel knowledgeable about this issue can
put together the statistics I'm sure.  Thank you guys from this sig also for
opening the opportunity.

You can contact me personally also so we can talk about more of the details
for speaking.  I do motivational speaking as well and I'm anxious to see
what you're looking for more so to see what I could provide also.  Talk to
you again soon.

Check out the book Jeannie Novak, Game Development Essentials Interface
Design.  I am in the second chapter about accessible game interface.

To let everyone know here as well as Ben in downtown Baltimore we are trying
to arrange for June 19 possibly a later date museum opening of two of my
paintings Jay Gibbons oil portrait and Denison Cabral soccer star portrait.
You can find more information about this on my web site.  We are trying to
arrange the local media and sports radio for the event to get more coverage
people out to the show and share the story if you are interested in putting
out a press release to help get the story and word out before hand that
would be great if you can.

Hi robert this sounds great.  Lets shape the ideas I put forward and  
we'll get it working.  The big thing is for you as a speaker to  
provide strong surveys of all the collective work that I'm looking to  
present.  It would seem with your background in the forums that you  
have a strong knowledgebase of what's been done, and what needs to be  
done.

Given you proximity to Baltimore what logistics do you need for  
attending?

- Ben
