Yeah, I couldn't believe it when they called me just as the meeting
was starting this morning. I'd been on the case for a few months now
but was losing hope until yesterday when I got a message saying that
they wanted to talk to me. The woman that used to run E3 is now
working for IDG/E for All so there have been a lot of shifts in ...
let's say philosophy ... and how without groups like ours, "all"
isn't "all."

So we need to think about signage for the booth. We have the poster
that we use but it would be great to have some other equally eye
catching things. Also it would be good if we could have some
mini-signage for the accessible hardware so that people can know what
they are seeing if the booth gets crowded. I mean WHEN the booth gets
crowded.

IDG, of course, owns several mainstream gaming magazines (ie,
GamePro), computer magazines, and websites. I mean I'm almost in
tears thinking about how great an opportunity this is for game
accessibility -- even after the show! With all that's going on with
the SIG -- from Eelke's dev work with the Torque Engine and the
SecondLife Grant to Richard and Sander's audio game maker work just
to name a couple things off the top of my head -- how can we all not
be pretty damn proud? :)

What a great week!

Michelle
