> Dear SW List members:
>
> Today is Steve Slevinski's birthday. Because of Steve's uniquely creative
> software development, today we all write SignWriting directly on the web,
> and we are able to share signs and documents with each other, without
> having to download or install any software. The web-based SignWriting
> environment that Steve has created and continues to create with SignPuddle
> software, and other developments such as the SignWriting Image Server,
> Binary SignWriting, Cartesian SignWriting, the SignWriting MediaWiki
> Plugin (and new developments are coming), has changed SignWriting from
> being a writing system that was only written by hand or on private
> personal computers, to a writing system that is widespread throughout the
> world because it is available on the web for anyone to use...
>
> Steve's dedication and flexibility to work with the internet and the web,
> and to work with all of us here on the SignWriting List, and now working
> towards helping SignWriting move towards Unicode, is truly pioneering
> work. It has changed my life in so many remarkable ways. I truly enjoy
> working with Steve on all the new SignWriting developments...Steve
> encouraged me to improve the International MovementWriting Alphabet 2004,
> to become the International SignWriting Alphabet 2008 and 2010, and
> without Steve that would not have happened... And another example of how
> Steve has changed our lives...without the web-based software that Steve
> has provided, we all on the List probably wouldn't know each other very
> well, because we would be working on our own private computers, and we
> would rarely share with each other...
>
> It is hard for me to even imagine not having SignPuddle in our lives...so
> today I say a public THANK YOU to you, Steve, for all you do for us
> everyday....I hope you have a splendid birthday, and that you get a chance
> to contemplate all you are accomplishing everyday for us - We appreciate
> it!
>
> HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
