Hi Colin,

Thanks for the intro. I've been on the road a lot of the past month on a
contextual inquiry project, but should be around with a more sane
schedule for the next 2 months. 

I'd love to start joining some of your calls, get up to speed on the
projects, and see where I might fit in.

I see the Thursday am meetings at 11am pst, but I couldn't quite tell
from the wiki when the other meetings are happening. Can you tell me
when the next meetings are?

Hi Daphne, Paul, and all,

I'd like to introduce you to a new volunteer on the Fluid Project, Kyle

> I'd like to introduce myself and ask if/how I can be involved with the
fluid project. My background is in occupational therapy and more
recently in usability. My master's work focused on the accessibility of
distance learning courses at the University of Washington where I was/am
a student. I'm currently finished with the academic portion of a PhD in
educational technology and looking for opportunities for research that
can lead to my dissertation. I can see that the fluid project has
members from both academic and work environments, but I can't quite tell
how it is organized and how to get involved.

Kyle and I spoke over the phone before the Fluid Summit and he's
interested in getting involved in the UX Walkthroughs for Sakai and
uPortal. Since you two are listed as the coordinators of those groups,
can you help to get Kyle up and running with the walkthroughs?

Kyle also has quite a bit of experience with remote user testing and is
interested in the VULab work and our testing process.
