Better yet, capture the screen with something like Camtasia, SnagIt, or  
FRAPs so we can actually see what is happening on the screen and make that a  
movie with the audio over it like the guys at 3DBuzz and make it  downloadable...  
Or sell it.

two things:

1) when will those of us in Toronto get  courses like this?

2) I'd like to suggest right now that this course  should be VIDEO TAPPED 
and put, with all the files needed etc on a DVD and  sold for $49.95 
USD...it can't be that big a deal to do it...what about  getting the 
gnomon guys to package it up? they have all the infrastructure  for it - 
they'd just need the raw video and files etc...?

SESI is  WAY BEHIND on things like this!
Alias have been putting out DVDs of their  SIGGRAPH Master Classes for 
years - and all they are is some guy talking  in front of a class....
