I just saw this, think it's brilliant, and have forwarded it to the
steering committee and let them know we'd have to move quickly. 
However, I do admit that we don't always move as fast as we could (damn
those volunteers for not working harder!)

I agree that a small, nominal fee would be useful.  Also, what about
the thought of a "pre-qualification" list?  Basically it would be a Web
page somewhere that you could read to get a rough (very rough) idea of
what you would need to know to benefit from the teach-in?  No point in
going to a teach-in if you are still hazy on the differences between
hashes and arrays, yes?

If we needed to, I would even consider personally chipping in some
money to pay for a venue or maybe see about making this an on-going
thing if the first one is successful?
