Yes I just figured out when David is speaking at the Austin conference GDC.

David Perry will be speaking on Friday, at 11 am, in Ballroom A.

The lady who is really in communication with him and will be there as well
her screen name is Tandy I'll have to get her real name see if you guys can
meet with there.

I told her about me and involvement you guys what we do advocate for
accessibility and I've told the whole group about what to do with the game
and I got many responses and good success for a good feature for this game
to be accessible. As I understand if this game is made accessible it will
be the very first game at this large of the scale in production and with
this large of a company backing it.

Thank you and please get back to me what information you would like me to
give you and what you think might be able to do to at least get to this
conference to let me know what it's like and what you plan to do?

I'm trying to log into the wiki page to do some blogging. Is very
specifically do it? I noticed that clicking on the link of my name doesn't
bring up any information about me is there a way to get that changed?

Re: Blog on website -- I am STILL waiting to hear when the new IGDA web
changes will occur so I'm working on a way to tie in the forums at
gameaccessibility.com to our wiki for at least the time being. In the time
being for that happening...please feel free to put up things on the wiki and
then send a note to the link on the wiki here.

Since I lost most of last week to being in the hospital, I'm running behind
schedule a bit and I'm leaving for GDC Austin tomorrow to give a talk with
Richard on GA/Game Audio that they'd wanted us to give since the conference
last year. I will try and find out more about Top Secret while at the
conference. Is there a formal presentation of it at GDC Austin, Robert?

I'm not sure what exactly is going on with my kidneys but I think that the
letters GDC have something to do with it since I got sick at the end of GDC
San Fran and sick before GDC Austin. This time was much more serious,
however, as my pulse/ox went down to 60 at several times...yikes.

these are mediocre times and people are
losing hope. it's hard for many people
to believe that there are extraordinary
things inside themselves, as well as
others. i hope you can keep an open
mind.
