Hi, Cindy, and thanks for letting us know how your meeting with everyone at CSUN went. It sounds like you had a great time. I wish we could have gone to one of those when we lived in California, but since we couldn't and we don't live there now, I don't know when or if we'll ever make it to one, but I hope everyone who did go had a blast! Take care. Julie Morales Life is a gift from God. What we do with it is our gift to him. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, March 23, 2006 7:40 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT: report from CSUN Hi, Katie et al, I'm back from having visited the bookshare folks at CSUN. Unfortunately, Scott was ill and couldn't join us for lunch, and I don't know what happened to Noah, but I did have a lovely lunch with Carrie and Pratik, and I had a lovely, if short, visit with the Bookshare folks: Gustavo, Janice, Susy, and Jim. Also, Guido, who was manning the IBM booth, was able to get away for a few minutes, so I met him, too. And had only time to say "Hi" to Elizabeth, who was manning the Crisscross booth. I wasn't able to stay for the 5:30 meeting and the following dinner and square dance--a disadvantage of living at home and not actually being at the conference--but I'm glad I did meet the people I did. Janice has been godd, I think, keeping us up-to-date about what's going on with bookshare, and if anything comes up at the 5:30 meeting, I'm sure she or Gustavo will share it with us as they did last year. She did say that the position that will work with the volunteers and help with the approval process hasns't been filled yet. Is there any one of you who is willing to move to Palo Alto? I'm sure it's a lovely place to live, and with the dot.com crash I gather housing is more available and perhaps a little less expensive than formerly--and with Stanford there, it's been to offer cultural opportunities and to hve a great library--and Carrie says there are a lot of good restaurants.
