Hi SignWriting List,

What a great SignWriting Symposium 2014 and what a wonderful world of 
sign writers,

Thanks to everyone who presented.  It was inspiring to hear your stories 
and it was fascinating to learn more about your work with SignWriting.

I was fortunate enough to present 3 times during the symposium.  The 
video segments and my slides are available on my presentation pages.  If 
there are any questions or comments, I'd love to hear about them either 
on the SW list or privately via email.

Presentation Footnote
==============
The Unicode mentioned in my presentations encodes the entire SignWriting 
Script.  The characters are located on plane 15 of the Private Use 
Area.  It has been stable since January 12th, 2012.  We have an almost 
working TrueType Font.

Next summer, Unicode version 8 will include a modified version of the 
ISWA 2010 symbol encoding.  The characters are located on plane 1 of the 
Supplementary Multilingual Plane .  The official proposal does not 
include characters needed for layout.  It might be useful if they 
produce a font.  It is a great acknowledgement of the standard that is 
the International SignWriting Alphabet 2010. Congratulations Valerie 
Sutton and a special thanks to Adam Frost.
