Blind Bargains Qast 209: The 4 Day Week

usually our first "In Studio" episode after convention coverage is the traditional wrap up show where we dissect and discuss a particular event 20 minutes longer than we really should. But, as you already know, these are strange times and we find ourselves amongst the BBQ Crew reflecting on life after CSUN instead of our normal post con conversation.

#CSUNATC20 Audio: Practical Design Powers Blindspot Consulting's Accessible Photo Booth

If you do these convention coverage events long enough, well, you end up having some compromising audio and photos being taken of you as a result.

And now the BBQ Crew has a few funny pictures of J.J. thanks to Blindspot Consulting, Inc. and their Accessible Photo Booth. Leah Shaull and Scott Tate walk J.J...

We've been lucky enough to capture the success of the Be My Eyes team on our microphones for years.

J.J. had Will Butler, VP Community, and Alexander Hauerslev Jensen, CCO, by the scaled down Blind Bargains Suite/Room/Alcove to chat on what's happened since our July 2019 interview in Las Vegas...
