    I attended Jared’s session at CSUN, and wonder if it is possible to get the CSUN presentation(s) somewhere?

    If not as a public download, as email would be fine 🙂

    I had the privilege of attending your session on Accessibility of Next Generation Web Applications Friday morning at CSUN. Would it be possible to obtain a copy of your power point presentation? I found your explanations on accessibility and the implications with Web 2.0 to be very interesting and I would like to share your information with my colleagues. Thank you.
