There is Hope that Things will Get Better

Education is a focus in this column and blog. Following my Google alerts today, I read a hopeful article that indicates things could get better for the disabled because of a new generation of concerned students. Specifically, the article states,
the fact of the matter is that the human dimension thrives at a new breed of universities, which are now serving up state-of-the-art, adaptive technology courses for civically engaged engineering students who want to make the world a better place for the disabled.
Read the entire article.

And here's the evidence. Last weekend I watched this 60-Minutes segment and marveled at the Pentagon's effort to produce a bionic arm.

How ironic that the iBot (I use one) is now off the market because insurance companies and policymakers wouldn't pay for it.
