For years Dan Hubbell and Gary Moulton have talked about going on a "road trip" through the back roads of America, to explore and share the stories of how accessible technology appears in every corner of our communities. Finally they decided to do it! On February 20th, Gary and Dan will embark on the “Road to CSUN”, an eight day road trip from Seattle to San Diego where we will be exploring and sharing these stories.
Check back here at the Microsoft Accessibility Blog between now and the departure on February 20th, to learn more about the preparations for the trip.
