Well, I guess the main reason would be that there are a number of blind
conferences of one kind or another throughout the year like ACB, NFB,
Closing the Gap, etc so there are plenty of them, but it just so happens
they are in places too far for me to travel to very easily. There are a
number of Linux accessibility conferences out there I'd love to go to,
as well but they usually get scheduled for a place like Los Angeles
which is on the other side of the country. Obviously, a couple thousand
miles is a bit far to go to see what new adaptive technologies are about
to be released.
Hmmm Tom, the question does occur to me why the organizers of the
closing the gap conference don't just organize more events.
there is a sight village in scotland which indeed would be an hour by
train from Durham, one in bermingham which would be about four hours
(though sinse my parents live in Nottingham which is much closer I'd
just go and visit them on the way), and one in London which I could
get to in about 3 hours, ---- though mostly because there is a train
New for this year, They're also runing a sight village exhibition in
county Cork in the republic of Ireland.
This would be a good deal harder for me to get too, and would require
a flight and overnight accommodation much as you describe, ----- but
when shows are run in much more convenient locales, ---- well missing
Ireland is something I could live with indeed.
Beware the grue!
