That's really good coverage I believe it came about because my school put a
press release about me they called me on my cell phone while I was sick in
my hotel room they were going to interview me and do a big story about it.
I guess they just found it was still interesting that's good. Still I'm
amazed though I could have been on the same broadcast as president of Sony.
Good your reid I am happy what an opportunity.

Hi everyone,

The Game Accessibility SIG did a fantastic job this past week at GDC
in San Francisco. Thanks to the IGDA and CMP we were able to do
multiple sessions and setup an Accessibility Arcade to get the word
out about game accessibility in general. We had KQED radio and TV
people from their Quest program come interview nearly everyone from
the SIG that was at GDC. We also got web and TV coverage from local
ABC channel 7 news which aired a report on TV about our work.
Apparently, I was in the piece demonstrating a Quad controller during
the Accessibility Arcade. Michelle Hinn and Richard Van Tol said they
saw it. I'm going to ask David the reporter if we can get video of it.

Here are the links to the media coverage.
