Ok, Ben, here's my hat in the ring. I became interested in sign writing
several months ago when I stumbled across the Web pages. I have
exchanged several messages with Valerie and found her to be supportive
and friendly to deal with. I have no fancy credentials, no college alma
mater, am just an interested friend. I am working to learn ASL and with
it SignWriting. At the same time, I am trying to learn HTML, or at
least enough to publish decent WEB pages. I found SignWriting (this
list) to be a friendly group, with none of the oh-poor-me attitudes that
happen sometimes among this type of discussion. I like the positive
attitudes of the educators and international persons represented here
and would like to encourage all to continue to share ideas and plans
