AW: Promotion to Distinguished Engineer

Congratulations, Rich.
I'm looking forward to your finishing the DHTML roadmap.  This has indeed
many implications beyond what i initially thought it had.

Betreff: Promotion to Distinguished Engineer

Judy, Al, Jon, and Gregg,

I am not sure if this was released in the press yet but I was promoted to
Distinguished Engineer last Friday. 

There are roughly 300 DEs in IBM in a community of roughly 195,000 engineers
and roughly 400,000 employees overall. This speaks volumes of IBM's
commitment to accessibility.

Part of this success has to do with the WAI's success - which I have been
fortunate to be involved with. 

So, I want to take the time to thank everyone involved.

Thank you!

Distinguished Engineer, SWG Accessibility Architect/Strategist
