Hi John,

The GPII effort is getting funding to build this out. This was only phase I
of the project. I was speaking with Gregg Vanderheiden about the project
this week. I am sure we could use your help on the next phases of the

We are trying to have a GPII meeting today at CSUN. I will bring your offer

Wow, I love this work. I am already thinking of how I can be of help. One
example is that I manage a team of developers, all of the products of which
are accessible to people with disabilities, so we may be a good choice as
testers of the SDKs you are working on. A second is that, because the
population we serve is people with disabilities, we could help provide you
with testers from that community. A third is that the primary population we
serve is people with cognitive disabilities, so I'm sure we could help
provide testers from that community as well. I will keep thinking about how
to be helpful. Please continue to keep us all up-to-date with your work.

This is a project I did with others for NIDDR as part of GPII funding. My
focus on the project was cognitive.
