I listen to the Mike Tech show pretty often, this is a guy who talks about and recommends products and solutions for technology freaks like me. A few months ago, I asked him for a Gmail account and he gave me one, but of course we all know what happened when I ran into the visual verification thing, so I wrote to him and expressed my frustration, but thanked him for the account.
Now that we have the petition and we're over 1600 signatures strong, I figured we should get the word out even more. So last night I e-mailed him and gave him a link to the petition and gave him Darrel's contact info, in case he wanted to find out more about it. So this is my little atempt to get the petition out there, into the sighted community as well. I'm sure lots of blind folks know about this already, it's in a lot of popular places. But to me this petition can't get enough signatures, so it's important to get it out wherever possible.
I'll be sure to let you know when Mike's next Podcast is out and hopefully he'll give it a mention.
