EOWG planning & record keeping

On September 10, 2012, Jennifer sent:

  • WAI-IG email message to the WebAIM list
  • WAI-IG email message to 17 "undisclosed recipients."
  • One of those recipients was Henny Swan. This message was a start toward my Action item 208. I then followed up, about three hours later, with a more personal message.
  • WAI-IG message to the Public WAI-Engage email list; I highlighted the mobile business case.
