Forget the great unwashed, think about providing useful materials
online to people who actually *want* to learn about the tools.
http://workshops.opengeo.org/ is the starting point we're using
corporately, at least salvaging the teaching effort we're expending at
conferences. Hats off to all teachers though -- preparing course
materials is a labor intensive grind, and like code the materials
require constant maintenance when you're teaching something as dynamic
as IT.
