I think our collaboration with EDUCAUSE has helped to elevate their
perception of accessibility as an important issue, but an equally important
parallel event was Tracy Mitrano of Cornell being elected to the EDUCAUSE
Board of Directors. Tracy's an oustpoken advocate for accessibility and I
see she's one of the speakers at this event. I suspect she had a hand in
organizing it.

Just received this announcement from Educause. Was this done in
coordination with ATHEN or in response to our collaboration? Anyway, great
to see this being covered by EDUCAUSE.
