OCDAC Newsletter January 30, 2007

Dear Friends,

We plan a very rich, wholesome, cheerful, and memorable contribution to the Deafnation Expo experience this coming April in Pomona. You all be wary of anyone sending or forwarding out emails telling we're doing something else there. Last year we made a positive and memorable impact on the future deaf generation and this year, we will do it again.

Bob Davila's actions have gone as predicted in the editor's previous blog and vlog submissions. The visibility of the future of deaf society emerge at Gallaudet University hopefully by the end of April 2007.

We have been getting plenty of accolades for making the holiday cards and toys accessible to the blind and the deaf-blind. We do things that otherwise most toy companies and even organizations serving the blind don't even consider doing to make things accessible to the blind. We are sad to report that one such organization, Lighthouse for the Blind , has people who chose to be critical of our products. They too offer toys and games, but at prices that makes most of them them practically inaccessible. Not only do we make things physically accessible to blind people, we also make them economically accessible as well.

Our newsletter will be taking on a new appearance soon. It's going to be shorter and carry the same rich advocacy. It's going to be colorful as it is going to carry pictures. And this newsletter will be reflecting some of the changes. Enjoy!

Thanks Hollywood! Movie studios have been buying hundreds of dollars worth of assistive technology from, us! Maybe we'll see our products on the silver screen.

We can't help but notice the deafread's blog awards voting page don't list any blogs that represent the future of deaf society. This sends a strong yet very sad message about a website that claims to be the conglomerate of the deaf blogs.

We are getting ourselves ready for the big education campaign of 2007 with the kickoff at the Orange County Mixer in March.
