I'm continuing to think about the usb visual alert for people who are hearing impaired. Tonight I saw this article on writing a linux USB driver and it points to this source of cool controllable LED lights .
From eWeek.com :
Our new (to us 2 years ago) house came with a large (maybe 36 square feet of floor) tiled shower in the master bath. The inspector warned me that it leaked but I hoped it was simply a problem with the plumbing. I tested the shower pan by sealing the drain and filling the pan with water drawn from elsewhere in the house. It leaked! Water ran under the house. The right thing to do would be to tear it out and replace it but that will be a major undertaking. I wondered if there was something I could do that would delay this major bill? How about coating the floor and bottom rows of tile up to the bench with Epoxy Waterproofer ? We decided to try it.

What Autistic girls are made of by Emily Bazelon is an interesting read.
Article at CNN about an accessible music game out of MIT. Sounds a bit like Guitar Hero. Gotta try it out.
This very neat interface to a sequencer is a cool idea for an accessible music system. A simplified version of this could be a ton of fun for kids with disabilities and their friends.
This weekend in Silk Hope NC. Good country fun, good food, and lots of fascinating old machinery. Check out Jonah's post for more info.
Gretchen pointed me to this page at the CITEd research center. Lots of interesting links to research and strategies for using multimedia to help students.
