It is with great pride and much excitement that I announce this acquisition. For those of you that don’t know the background of this publication Mind Vault Solutions, Ltd. has served the former Publisher of this newsletter, Larry Lewis of Flying Blind, LLC, and its Editor-in-Chief, Dean Martineau, for the last 12 years (since early 2008). I, professionally, have also been the lead Project Manager for the owner and founder of Flying Blind, LLC, Larry Lewis, since that time. It is important to note here that both Larry Lewis and Dean Martineau are both completely blind.
Larry Lewis founded Flying Blind, LLC in early 2007 and teamed up with Editor Dean Martineau to become the Publisher of the Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday Email Newsletter in early 2008. Since that time the Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday Email Newsletter has been delivering current news and trends to over 6,500+ adaptive technology professionals and enthusiasts each week.
“The Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday Email Newsletter is your #1 online resource for current news and trends in adaptive technology.” Adaptive Technology (AKA Assistive Technology) refers to technologies that provide adaptations which assist individuals with a disability or other impairment.
Two years ago Larry stepped away from Flying Blind, LLC to become the Director of Government Sales and Strategic Partnerships for The Paciello Group (https://www.paciellogroup.com/), a leading provider of accessibility monitoring and software management solutions. TPG clients are many of the best known brands in the world, and their experts are globally recognized for their contributions to accessibility standards and guidelines.
It was at this time that Larry agreed to continue self-funding the distribution of the Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday Email Newsletter for a minimum of two years, which he has so very graciously done. Well, that two years comes to an end this month, and Larry has made the decision to step away from the publication as of June 1st 2020. Larry explains his reasons, motivations and plans in his own Press Release regarding the transition here: http://www.toptechtidbits.com/tidbits2020/05112020/.
In order to preserve both the legacy and future of this leading publication, Larry, Dean and I have worked closely together to craft a new structure for Top Tech Tidbits intended to set the newsletter on a new path of self-sustainability going forward.
In this vein, effective with Issue 758 slated for distribution on June 4th 2020, Mind Vault Solutions, Ltd. will assume all rights and distribution responsibilities for this publication, and I, Aaron Di Blasi, will now lead both its publication under this new structure, as well as its weekly distribution. Dean Martineau shall continue to be Editor-in-Chief as he always has been.
If you or a loved one require any type of assistive technology in order to overcome a disability or other impairment, or if you are a technology professional or adaptive technology enthusiast, I encourage you to join us each week as we review the latest and greatest in adaptive technology news and trends. You can sign up to receive the Top Tech Tidbits for Thursday Email Newsletter here: http://bit.ly/1irUr9E.
I would like to personally extend my hearfelt thanks to Larry Lewis, Flying Blind, LLC and Dean Martineau for entrusting Mind Vault, and myself specifically, with the future of this invaluable publication. It is my sincerest hope that under its new structure it will now live on not just as an invaluable informational resource, but as a tribute to you both.
