In the thick of it in Jacksonville

10th July 2006 • Dave

Checked into the Hyatt Regency last night around 8PM local time. Met the manager of Dolphin US who treated me to dinner. It turns out Gareth Collins and I have a lot in common and the evening was both productive and fun, as was today at the Dolphin booth 72 in the exhibit hall.

I also managed to catch up with the ACB Radio croud for a drink, and they talked me into going on air this afternoon. Hoping to be able to link to audio archives soon.

Pocket Hal works extremely well with the Braille Connect 12 a tiny 12 cell Bluetooth Braille display from Baum, sold in the US as the Conny.

Dolphin presented to Blind Information Technology Specialists BITS this afternoon. Although we were a bit rushed as the proceeding presentation over-ran. Not to worry, I think they knew we were there, and everyone had lots of fun exploring a range of main stream PDA technology.

This evening I checked out the ACB Opening General Session which included a very moving presentation from a blind guy who escaped from the WTC on 9 11.

It has been a busy couple of days, and it is about to get much busier. I will post when I get chance.

Pip pip.
