AA Center for Independent Living--Needs Survey
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living would like to hear from you. Please let us know what issues in your community are important to you by participating in our community needs survey.
The needs of people with disabilities are diffuse through all demographics and can be difficult to identify. Our survey is looking to use your input to make sure your voice is heard when programs and policies are created that affect persons with disabilities.
By clicking on this link, http://www.aacil.org/survey/survey6.htm, to our survey and taking just 15 minutes to participate, you will help to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and create a community which is inclusive of people of all abilities.
We appreciate your assistance because your opinion is important in our community. If you have any questions, comments, or would prefer completing the survey over the phone, please contact Andrea King at (734) 971-0277 ext. 53 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your assistance in participating in the survey and disseminating this request to the community.

PostGenomic Science Blog Aggregator
For those who enjoyed our podcast on science blogs, here is a newly discovered resource to help make it easier to follow the science blogosphere -- PostGenomic.
PostGenomic is an aggregator -- a source that compiles or aggregates information from a variety of sources. In this case, PostGenomic collects information from a variety of science blogs, and repackages in a way to make them more useful. It has several very nice features, including (my favorite) the option to track your favorite blog postings and see who is talking about them. It collects science blogs across domains, so is broad in scope, but I have yet to visit their main page without finding something of interest. A marvelous resource!
