It’s a privilege to call Deborah Kendrick a long-time friend. I have followed her coverage of the assistive technology industry for years now, and her level of well-balanced, thorough attention to detail is unwavering. If Deborah does not believe in a product or service, she will admit as much.
So it was a privilege to sit down for a chat with Deborah that resulted in not one but two coveted spots in the March issue of Access World, a highly respected publication known for in-depth coverage of technology developments of interest to blind consumers.
In the first Access World article, Deborah puts together a portrait of a guy I still affectionately think of as the boy genius. We learn more about the young man who evolved into the programming marvel that helped put more assistive technology into the hands of blind people. He was the engine behind all the innovation we brought about at Serotek Corp, and he is the driving force behind the revolutionary blueprints we are cooking at Pneuma Solutions. No article will ever fully capture the respect I will always have for Matt Campbell, but I am grateful there is an article that highlights a few of his accomplishments as a tech wizard, a secret weapon indeed.
I can’t help but read the second Access World article with a certain nostalgia. Freedom Box feels as though it happened centuries ago, and yet, even then we were thinking ahead, laying the groundwork for some of the ingenuity that the mainstream takes for granted today. Deborah painted a beautiful panoramic landscape of where we started and where we are today.
If you have not perused this month’s issue of Access World, we encourage you to do so and sign up for future issues.
Thank you, Deborah, for giving us the opportunity to tell our story, and to Access World, for allowing us to share it.
