I'm just wondering, for the sighted volunteers, how did you guys get mixed up in
this crazy Bookshare crowd? What lead you to wanna become part? Do you
know someone blind, did you hear about it through some volunteer
organization, did you just type in "whiny bookish blind people into Google
one day?"

Seriously though, I am curious.  I'm wondering how this info
enters the sighted book-reading sphere and what compels someone to put in
the work.  Also, how has it worked for you as an education tool about
blindness?  How would one convince other sighted folks that they should
volunteer too?Most of my sighted friends and family would be like,
"Bookshare what?"  "You want me to do what?"
