The Seminar in Chennai

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

The main reason for my visit to South India was the National Seminar on Print Access For All, which was organized by the dynamic Mr. Krishnaswamy. There was a great article on the seminar in the major paper based in Chennai, The Hindu, entitled: Publishers urged to reach out to print-disabled population. I enjoyed giving my 20 minute talk on Bookshare.org and building a global library.
