hi Eelke,

Yes the wiki is the plan -- we have our own that I'm trying to update
at the moment at:

http://www.igda.org/wiki/index.php/Game_Accessibility_SIG

I thought about looking for an automated meeting reminder but I think
that most of us have some sort of calendar where we can just put that
down on. The notes will be summarized for each meeting (reading
through pages of emoticons gets dull after a while)

At this point for the website, all I know for sure is that the wiki
will remain. So anything we do there, stays there. I'm thinking about
asking if, at least temporarily, it can be our opening page since the
blog is going away in favor of some web 2.0 system.

Michelle
