Good idea, Shane! I have done that once years ago, and he was very
polite. A nice person. And he was nice enough to say he was amazed and
impressed with SignWriting. And I believe that he was sincere. But
Gallaudet does not back any one theory officially...so what could he
do? He can't force anyone. However, if I wrote and offered free copies
of SignBank to all of the teachers on the Gallaudet campus, maybe that
would stimulate something without the President feeling pressured to
back it...He will simply be offering the free software to any teacher
or researcher on campus who wants to participate...I will try that in
February and I will keep you informed!

Meanwhile, you can help me. When I am ready to offer SignBank to the
Gallaudet campus, I will need some of you to help me write email to the
President of Gallaudet at the same time, saying that you use
SignWriting and hope others on campus will too...Will any of you be
willing to help me with this?!...smile...Val ;-)
