Good point. I don't see an easy way to keep these stacks continually 
updated though. But if the conferences are anything like the AOL 
versions, I think you'll find that we end up with a fairly complete 
explanation by the time the stack is done (the Q&A sessions tended to 
catch a lot of loose ends.) I guess if there is any further follow-up 
later on, it would have to be done on the lists as you say. Of course, 
the best solution would be to make sure that all the gurus are at the 
conference in the first place. ;) Several of the RR team members plan to 
attend.

My initial idea was to have this first set of beginner topics and see 
how it goes. If the conferences are well attended and received, then I 
would like to continue with a set of intermediate topics. If those are 
popular, then we can go on to more advanced stuff. We could conceivably 
be doing this for some years.

I also suspect these conferences can benefit lots of people who are not 
on this list. There are some customers who are new to Revolution but 
don't participate here, and others who have heard of Rev but haven't 
started working with it yet. These first conferences would be ideal for 
them. RR will do a customer mailing about it, but if folks know of 
anyone else who might be interested, spread the word.
