RE: Could we organize to mentor new blind coders?

Well like Sina said I thought that was what this list is for. IN fact from
time to time I have taken people off list and helped them to get certain
coding environments set up and first projects done.

Subject: Could we organize to mentor new blind coders?

Instead of trying to start an on-line school for blind programmers,
would it be possible to organize as a volunteer organization to mentor
people with vision impairments to become good programmers?  For
example, you guys mostly had to figure it out on your own, so you can
say you've already trained one programmer.  What if we try to get
people to train two?  So, if several of us agreed to train one person
with a vision impairment for free, and over a long period of time, and
in return we ask those people do the same for two other people, could
we build a growing organization of mentors with vision impairments
large enough to make a real difference?
