There's a TeX Hour tomorrow evening (Thursday 1 April) 6:30 to 7:30pm UK
time. We are privileged to have Jana Schroeder as a special guest.  In
other news, within a few hours videos from past TeX Hours will be up on
YouTube (all the way up to last week). URLs are below.

Last month Jana organised a who-are-we and what-do-we-want and
how-to-get-there meeting which was attended by over 20 blind coders. Jana
has applied for a $25,000 Holman prize to fund her project, called Blind
Coders Blazing Trails.

The draft agenda for tomorrow is
1. Introductions
2. News from Blind Coders, with questions and answers
3. Blind persons as partners for accessible math
