It has been a busy couple of months and I have neglected my blog a bit more than I intended to.
From February to July this year I was lucky enough to participate in a tech development contest organized by AT&T and NYU. The goal was to invite people to create new tech solutions for people with disabilities.
i was asked to provide feedback on each idea along with a diverse panel of people with and without disabilities. With me were three amazing advocates for accessability Xian Horn, Gus Chalkias, and Jason DaSilva. All of us have a different background and different challenges. we all brought our unique perspectives to the process.
Our role was to represent the end user and ask questions that might not occur to people without disabilities. hopefully this will lead to products that can help people become or remain independent. It was a wonderful experience that I was privileged enough with which to be involved.
Having said that, I am hoping that my readers check out the contest page and the wonderful videos about the exemplars so they can see what I have been up to. I hope to get back on a regular schedule now of posting regular blog entries and have some great ideas, so check back soon.
