SXSW 2005 Panel Transcript

September 1, 2005
SXSW Interactive 2005

A long time ago, in a location far far away, there was a presentation at SXSW that included myself, Ian Lloyd and James Craig moderated by Glenda Sims. Audio was recorded and we had all promised that it would be transcribed and posted.

Which brings us to now – 6 months later, and we are able to finally announce that the transcription of “Accessibility… can’t we all just get along” is now live.

Many many many thanks to Glenda and James for their work transcribing the audio, and to James for putting the well-structured, accessible, and well-designed transcript together. There are some details in his work that show great use of space, style and semantics. Making things accessible isn’t always easy, but hopefully those of you that weren’t there will enjoy the audio and the transcription, and those of you that were there can relive the memories like it was the “good ol’ days.”

Just a quick update for those of you that may have been wondering. I’m not back from SXSW yet. Most of you were shocked to learn that I had actually driven from Ottawa to Florida and then flew over to Austin for SXSW. You will not be shocked to learn that we’re driving back, nor will you likely be shocked when I say driving that far twice in two weeks sucks.

I can’t say enough about the people I met this week. I’ll have a few thoughts to post after I arrive at home – but for now, just know that I am somewhere between SeaWorld, Disney, and home.

A number of updates – first, yes, I am aware that I managed to go a whole month without posting anything here. One of my last posts mentioned that the first quarter of 2005 was going to be incredibly busy. It has certainly turned out that way, and I can’t complain.
