Linux Accessibility Conference: Schedule as of 2.28.01



Dear All,
     This schedule is not set in stone, but thanks to
the assistance of various individuals (especially
Aaron Leventhal), it is approaching its final form. 
The one part of the schedule where we need particular
assistance is finding corporate representatives for
the second day.  If you have contacts at companies
such as Compaq, HP, or other relevant businesses,
please contact me (JP Schnapper-Casteras,
jpsc@users.sourceforge.net, 206-849-9048) as soon as
possible.  Feel free to forward this message to
friends, colleagues, or appropriate mailing lists. 
Thanks.

Best,

--JP Schnapper-Casteras
Organizer of the Linux Accessibility Conference
Founder and Co-Admin of Project Ocularis
