Does anyone know about accessibility of Oracle's Beehive?  Press clipping 
attached. By the way, when I called Oracle neither their Sales nor their PR 
dept knew about it.  It didn't come up in their website either.

<blockquote>
Beginning this month, Pennsylvania schools will be invited to attend an
information session discussing the benefits that Oracle's Beehive
technology can provide their students. The Beehive unites messaging,
discussion and webpage creation into one coherent whole. Pilot schools
then will be selected from those attending this session and will begin
using this innovative web-based technology by this spring. Oracle
estimates its investment may total as much as $49 million to bring Beehive
technology to fourth- through eighth-grade students across the
Commonwealth.
