Re: Accessibility curriculum development - meet at W3C TPAC

While I will not be at TPAC, I can arrange to meet Suzette at some  
point to talk about this. We live in the same country, and we were  
talking to her from within Opera about some education initiatives  
already, I believe.

Suzette - what does your schedule look like?
