Good idea! You can use that in your organizing committee in DC!  
smile......Say that it was invented in Denmark, to write the  
movements of Danish Sign Language from video at the University of  
Copenhagen in 1974...and Denmark was the first school system to use  
SignWriting in four schools for the Deaf starting in 1982, and they  
use it to this day in other programs, such as interpreter training  
and that is 1974 - 2006 in Denmark... so SignWriting  
has been used in Denmark for 32 years!
