OCTOBER 2011 – Newsletter #2

The Ted Simon Foundation

Current News

And so the news is out and no longer are people all over the place going, ‘nudge, nudge’, or ‘who do you think it is?’ Yes, it is now official. Bernard has been selected by the Ted Simon Foundation as a Jupiter’s Traveller. In essence the foundation was set up to encourage;

‘…….those who adventure into the world to go the extra mile and transform their experiences into something of value for the world to share.’

You see it is true that many fantastic people have done wonderful things out there in the world but few generate anything lasting in terms of sharing their experiences. The Foundation hopes to change that by giving advice and wedges to jam into various media doors to enable people to get a hearing about their projects. 

What next?

In the meantime, Bernard and Cathy’s work has been ongoing in transforming aspects of their web site to improve access for people with any form of print impairment. By providing audio versions of things like this newsletter they are working towards providing accessible forms AT THE SAME TIME as standard print versions. You can follow progress on the site under the new tab labelled ‘AUDIO’ in the near future.

Due to motorcyclists love of ‘be-stickering’ their bikes with places they have visited or links they find interesting, work has also started on producing a sticker which is hoped will be available by publication time.
