I have officially become a member of BITS (Blind Information Technology Specialists), an affiliate of the American Council of the Blind. This means I have reversed my original policy of neutrality with respect to blindness organizations, choosing not to remain “on the fence” so to speak. Though I continue to believe much effective advocacy can be accomplished individually and across organizations within the blind community, it is also important to be involved in one of the two most significant American blindness organizations to have the greatest possible impact.
