Scott is the wildly prolific and multi-lingual author of the Rolling Rains Report, concentrating on inclusive tourism, travel and universal design. Over dinner at Kincaid’s overlooking the San Francisco Bay, we tried to remember how we met and how long we had been corresponding – I’ve got email from Scott dated 2005, and I first linked to Gimp Eye for the Clueless Guy in 2003, so at least 7 internet years, which must be, what, 20 or 30 real years?
Wheelchair Dancer writes about dance, and life on both coasts, and especially about the body. Her writing is imbued with a physical sensuality that I’ve rarely seen in others, and in my efforts to become stronger and more connected with what my body can do I’ve gotten a lot of encouragement from her work.

Check out WCD’s post on the Meeting – all true. When we crossed the road together, we both rolled down the driveway together, both stopped at the same time, bending over and looking to the left around the parked cars to check for traffic, both speeded up over the crest of the road…it was fun.
