>> Hi there everyone.
>> I hope everybody's week is going well.
>> I don't normally subscribe to online list serves but because I really 
>> enjoy meeting new people and I'm always looking to meet other people that 
>> are blind who may be going through some simillar things that I am and 
>> I've always been of the philosophy that you can never have too many 
>> friends.
>> Before I do talk a bit about myself though I would just like to start 
>> this intro off by saying that I'm not really per say a member of the NFB 
>> or ACB.
>> I think that both organizations have unique perspectives and view points, 
>> however I don't really subscribe to either organization directly.
>> While I'll admit that in some ways I do lean slightly more towards the 
>> ACB because of it being slightly more liberal in some respects I need to 
>> make it clear that I'm not on this or any of the lists to be preached to 
>> about how one philosophy is better then the other.
>> I try to take a little bit out of both of the organizations philosophies 
>> and attempt to be neutral so if you do decide to contact me off list I'll 
>> ask that you please respect my feelings as expressed above.
>> Now I'll get off of my soapbox and tell the list a bit about myself.
>> My name is Jonathan, but most of my friends call me Jon.
>> I'm 26 years of age and from Massachusetts a city called Brockton located 
>> about 45 or so minutes south of Boston.
>> I'm totally blind and have been since birth.
>> I like to think that I have a wide variety of interests though I am a 
>> fairly laid back sort of individual.
>> Some of my interests include reading, listening to all types of music, 
>> talking online, on the phone, going out to dinner, sometimes to the 
>> movies, and browsing around in bookstores and music shops.
>> My 2 big passions in life are great books and music though I'm known for 
>> being a bit ecclectic on both fronts so if you would like to know more 
>> specifically what sorts of books or music I'm in to feel free to email me 
>> off list about this and I'll be more then happy to elaborate on this a 
>> bit.
>> I'm currently single and do not have any kids though like many people I'm 
>> always on the look out for that special person when and if they happen to 
>> come along.
>> I think that for an introduction that this is probably a great start.
>> So if any of what I wrote appealed to you and if you feel like responding 
>> I invite folks to feel free to email me off list or to IM me on aim.
>> My email address is
>> jmatte28 at comcast.net
>> and my aim screen name is tvvault82
>> I'm sorry but I don't have skype or MSN but if you do decide to contact 
>> me via aim or email I'm very good about getting back to people.
>> I tried introducing myself to some of the student lists but didn't really 
>> get a very receptive welcome so thought I would try one of the more 
>> mainstream lists in the hopes that reaching a broader audience might get 
>> me some more responses.
>> Thanks for checking out my post and have a great day.
