I always skim the subjects in the digest of the list, and when there is a subject like "Copyright," I make sure to read the entire thread. I just wanted to explicitly say thank you to our volunteer community for approaching issues like this with intelligence and care. I am proud about what this community has accomplished, and am looking forward to more great work as we expand Bookshare.org to serve tens and hundreds of thousands of people. Lisa Friendly and I just spent the week in Washington, DC, meeting with the Department of Education, many disability professionals at the NCTI conference, lobbyists, Capitol Hill staff, the Association of American Publishers, the NFB and our new partners on the Pacific island of Guam. Right now I'm on the plane back to San Francisco. It was a very successful week. We are relatively new to Washington: it's been ten years since I last played a significant role in DC, as one of the main authors of the Section 508 federal advisory committee report. The huge award we received from the Department of Education has really shaken things up in the special education field in DC, because we're simply not known in the halls of power. It's an incredible opportunity to revolutionize access to print for people with disabilities. And, knowing the quality and commitment of our staff-and-volunteer team, I'm sure we're going to deliver! Thank you for helping make this possible. Jim To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
