Thank you, Gerard Meijssen, for posting the interview with Steve. It has now been mentioned on the web in SignPost:

The SignPost

Excerpt:

> "Sign-language Wikipedia: After his recent blogpost about improving Unicode and web font support, WMF localisation team member Gerard Meijssen this week published an interview with Steve Slevinski, a specialist in bringing sign language onto the web (Wikimedia blog). It is hoped that the move to standardise web translations of sign language will allow for better documentation of (particularly global) hearing-impaired issues and culture; a MediaWiki extension that could power a whole Wikipedia written in sign language is currently being developed by Slevinski."


Very cool!

Val ;-)
