Members of the W3C may be interested to know that President Clinton is
convening the first public conference to discuss the impact of the digital
economy on May 25 and May 26, 1999 in Washington DC.   The conference
"Understanding the Digital Economy --Data, Tools and Research" is posted at
http://www.ecommerce.gov   U.S. Secretary of Commerce Daley will be
delivering one of the keynotes and I will be presenting a paper at the
Access Workshop panel the first day of the conference.  My paper, "The
Growing Digital Divide in Access for People with Disabilities:  Overcoming
Barriers to Participation," was commissioned by the National Science
Foundation. It will be posted at the conference website and later published
in October by MIT Press.  The law and policy White Paper has a civil rights
approach to topics including web-based transactions, electronic textbooks,
long distance learning, and internet kiosks, for example.  The paper is
heavily annotated with hyperlinks to resources for your review.  

On May 26 there will be a breakout session to discuss my paper and public
participation is highly encouraged.  Members of the W3C are certainly
welcome to attend.  Registration information is at the conference website.
