Blind News and KNFB Reader Upgrade
I apologize for neglecting the blog for so long, but I have been very busy with the
My major beef today is that Blind News seems to be out of business for the time being. Based on what I think are frivolous and rather grandiose complaints by some authors who objected that their intellectual property had been included for distribution by Blind News, Free Lists discontinued the service. I can’t fathom why such authors object to having their materials made available to persons who are blind and are usually precluded from reading these articles at the original source. I hope Blind news will resume very soon, perhaps in a country with clearer copyright laws. I have found this service to be an invaluable resource in keeping abreast of how blindness related stories are being reported in the world media. I have befriended several international writers as a direct result of finding their articles through Blind News. Let us all thank Jeff and Leon for their tireless efforts with Blind News. If I can assist in any manner, please let me know.
I am also very excited about the prospect of upgrading my current KNFB reader to the cell phone based unit. Talk about killing more than two birds with one stone! I can finance the upgrade with just one platinum trade, and I feel fortunate to be in this blessed position. Comrades, I’ve missed blogging and hope to publish with greater regularity very soon.
Power to the Peeps!
