Hi everyone just wanted to get your thoughts about this new Steven Spielberg
reality television show for new films. The deadline is February 16
something I'd be pushing to get a trailer ready and send out the documentary
of working on by then. Basically people can look at your movies on line a
guest judge them and Steven Spielberg and his partner to create a lot of
reality television shows on Fox will pick like maybe 16 winners who come on
the show in each week we have to make a new movie and the winner at the end
gets $1 million to make their movie. Something I think is worth taking a
risk I don't mind making movies especially to give you an awesome support
group to do it so what's there to lose but there is an issue about the
program possibly maintaining the rights if I send them my whole documentary
but I didn't really understand their legality things on their web site. I
think that's just my fear of not sure if I read that. Anyways if I send
this and I really hope you all can check it out on this web site login and I
let you know if I do and start commenting and who knows what could happen.
This could be the thing I'm looking for I don't know but maybe.

Hi Jonathan,

No worries -- I know how things go when you don't get to see the preview of
an article before it goes to press. It's definitely not a big deal in my
book -- it happens. It's just too bad when it does but the authors are so
often dealing with work count issues that sometimes they can't even help but
shorten things.

Agreed -- what happened to the accessibility foundation is quite
unbelievable -- it just doesn't seem fair when things like this happen.

Also, if there's a demo or ppt that we can show at GDC of the jam stuff,
even if we can't make it fully available, to show what you're doing, please
let me know and we can include it in the accessibility arcade session.

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all doing well - sorry that I'm not able to contribute to your
emails too oftenŠ

And sorry that there was no mention of the SIG or gamesaccessibility.com in
the e-Access bulletin article. The reason is that I didn't see the article
before it was published, so had no idea what was or wasn't in it. The
article was taken from quotes from a demo I gave in London, so they were
chosen by the journalist, not myself. There were quite a lot of things in
the article that I'd have changed or corrected, if given the chance. It's a
pity I didn't get that chance before publicationŠ

And, Richard, Sander - I'm gutted to hear about the fire at your offices.
Especially as we had such a good meeting in them the day before. I don't
know if there's anything we can do from England to help you sort things out
other than to send our best wishes. But if we can help, please let me know.

Rest assured everyone that I very much value every contribution that you've
made to what we're trying to do at jam. The one part of e-Access bulletin's
article which I liked most was them quoting me on how frustrating it is that
we can't make our stuff available outside the UK at the moment. I'd love all
of you guys outside the UK to have a chance to look at what we've been able
to do so far, so if ever you're in the UK, give me a call and I'll give you
a personal demo.

My very best wishes
