Re: Accessibility Summit for GNOME Boston?

Hi Willie and All,

I have a lot going on lately in my life which is why I have been AWOL
from a11y this past month or so.  My apologies for that, but I'm hoping
to show my ugly face back in the channel soon enough.  :-)

I'd love to try to go to the Summit.  I'll need to figure out what kind
of budget to come up with.  Any ideas for what might be covered already?
(i.e., hotel)
