This podcast is all about the 27th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference commonly referred to as CSUN. Robert speaks with Jessica Rathwell who offers a fascinating perspective on what attending this conference is like for an independent woman who is blind.
In addition to discussing some most interesting presentations and products, Robert and Jessi talk about the importance of social networking and some of the challenges faced by people who are blind trying to connect with others at a mega conference like this one.
The idea of people with disabilities reaching out to the mainstream community was explored in some detail. You will find Jessi’s perspective insightful and refreshing. Her enthusiasm inspired me to make a personal commitment to attend CSUN in the very near future.
