Good night Val and the whole broadcast list...
This morning I felt in my heart to do translations of some topics into
Brazilian Sign Language and American Sign Language. I think in some
spiritual way we are connected.
I am available to translate to Libras and ASL. But watching some videos of
Mauricios Barreto, I felt like trying to do it in International Signs.
In the afternoon I was writing the script for a video that would be an
introduction where I would explain in an updated and modern way "what is
But I didn't record it, I was just drafting the script. That email of yours
encouraged me to continue.
I need to see the response of the other participants to see what my next
move will be.

> I need your help.
> Can we create a collaborative YouTube channel for International
> SignWriting Instruction using video in your sign languages?
> I spoke with Steve Slevinski, and he suggested that, rather than creating
> a web page, it will be better if we collaborate as a group, to create a new
> YouTube Channel, that gives SignWriting educators in each country the
> collaborative membership in the Channel, so everyone can post their videos
> that teach SignWriting topics in their sign languages.
> Hopefully the YouTube Channel can be administered by several people, and
> each country will have their place and permission to post instruction
> videos in their sign languages, linking in some way to my English book
> instruction, and also linking to the SignWriting YouTube Channel that we
> already have, but it will be only for teaching SignWriting topics.
> Shall we call it something like:
> “SignWriting Instruction Channel”
> SignWriting Lessons International
> What would you call it?
> And can someone help me set it up on YouTube?
> Then I will create a Lesson and try to link to your videos -
> I am struggling a little because I do not know how to do this - hope you
> can help me - it could become a valuable way for people to see your
> instruction - here on the SW List it is limited because not everyone knows
> how to use the SW List and so we are not reaching as many people -
> Any ideas? Do you already have collaborative YouTube channels?
