    When they know new people are in the room, it would be nice for them to stop and do brief introductions in order to make it easier for the newbies to interact with the established members.

    Harsh Samdani gave some very useful tips on SharePoint adoption
    Haniel Croitoru presented a very comprehensive talk on Accessibility for websites and his own input and examples from a project he completed. I feel this issue will become much more important
