   I'm interested to learn more.

   At work there are some "lunch and learn" sessions that are being hosted 
by ESRI.  They use a combination of a remote desktop (MS Live Meeting, but 
could just as easily be Citrix gotomeeting.com or similar) and a 
conference call.

   I've asked the organizer if we could continue these sessions later to 
include the OSGeo components as well.  What I don't know is the details of 
how that might be done.  In the case of ESRI they may be free and come out 
of their marketing budget -- so now sure how to do the same for OSGeo 
which doesn't have such a budget to dip into.
