[games_access] Skype and Usability

Hey all,

I'd definitely be interested in a skype next week (robin.koman). Also, in
regards to the testing, the masters students I work with go through a
training on a variety of usability testing methodologies, but they're
located in Orlando. If there's anything that could be done over a distance,
I'm sure I could drum up some folks to participate.


Cheers,
