I thought some of you might be interested in the following Webcast. For
those of you who're fairly familiar with the issues, I'd particularly point
you to the text transcript of the archived interview that took place this
afternoon. It's faster to skim. the presentation lasts about 45 minutes.
One of the topics which might be of most interest to this group was the
discussion of cost. In that discussion (answer to the specific question),
the respondents gave some succinct and clear answers concerning why
accessibility is important for all.
Hope some of you find this item of interest. Even though universities are
discussed at length, much of the information is universally applicable.
