Fair enough:
- Intro to GIS, why it is fun!
- Overview of Java Open Source GIS
- Demo of GeoServer and MapBuilder (web based GIS)
- Intro to Eclipse RCP - why it is a platform rather then a framework
- Demo of uDig
- Future RnD - playing with large data - GTXML

If there is interest I can answer questions based on the following not 
Java subjects.
- Standards OGC and ISO
- Open Source Geospatial Foundation
- How an Open Source community functions, and what is needed to support one

If people are not going home and the beer has run out:
- mad metadta plan: applying the extensible interface pattern to handle 
interoperability in a strongly typed language (Java)
- feature mode: what it means for you and how we will handle GML3.1.1

Can someone forward this to the juga list? I subscribed but have not 
been added yet...
