Joe, Dave and I did a presentation last Thursday for the State of Virginia 
Webmasters in Richmond that was based upon our previous presentation, 
reference www.eeicom.com/dcwebmasters/pwd .

We only had an hour and a half, so this was an abridged version.  I 
started, Joe demonstrated winvision.  I had planned to demo pw webspeak and 
Dave had planned to demo lynx and JFW but we were running short on time. 
 Lastly, Dave played clean up and showed everyone how PWDs can create web 
pages, which blew them away!

We are refining this presentation and are feeling more comfortable.  We 
would like to take this more places.  If you know any groups who would like 
us to present in the Washington DC Metro Area, please recommend us!  We 
would gladly travel longer distances if we could find sponsorship.


P.S.  With all the past email traffic about PWD etiquette, I must say we 
made quite a splash on the streets and cross walks of Richmond with us 
forming a train with me leading Joe and Dave.  Please understand, that I am 
not the most experienced guide.  We were crossing streets, climbing hills 
and managing the steps and ramps.  One time in the hallway, Joe was finding 
his way with the cane and a lady was unsure which way to go, picked the 
wrong direction and jumped in front of him.  But Joe would disagree and say 
that was the right direction <ha>.  And I must say I learned quite a lot 
and my apologies to Dave.  I didn't always say when I was stopping. Joe 
could tell because he was holding onto me, but Dave was holding onto Joe's 
arm and could not tell right away.  I do not know how many times I caused 
Dave to bump into the back of Joe or caused his shoulder to catch the 
doorway.  Dave, my sincerest apologies for making us look like the three 
stooges and I appreciate Joe and your since of humor!
