    Juan, I don't know if the NERD Center is near the Marriott. Perhaps someone else will join this discussion to let you know. John

    Thank John, that is the one next to the Marriott? I thought the NERD building is the one in Memorial, as per directions, like three blocks away, and I went to another meet up at the MTC next door to the stop and it was more convenient.

    Juan, the meetings are held at the "Microsoft Technology Center" near the Red Line in Kendall Square. The building is known as the New England Research and Development (NERD) Center. Directions can be found at http://a11y-bos.org/node/11 . John

    Would it be possible to do the next meeting at the Microsoft Technology Center, near the 'Red Line' Kendall Square/MIT stop. which is easier to get to in the wheelchair from the T stop.

    I came across this article, http://www.post-gazette.com/news/health/2013/12/16/Creating-a-more-disability-friendly-city/stories/201312160014, that mentioned "These two questions were the centerpiece of Pittsburgh's first "Accessibility Meetup," held last week at Google's offices in Larimer. Organized by local disability advocates Gabe McMorland, 31, and Chris Maury, 27, the Pittsburgh endeavor takes a cue from similar efforts in Chicago, Toronto and other cities with a progressive agenda to become barrier-free." Do you know if Boston is one of those cities?
