any plan to sell later that DVD and screen captures later? I'm 10.000 km
away and didn't start to play with revolution, but your DVD will help me
to decide.


> The "Day One Pass" previously offered just to people who purchased the 
> RevSelect bundle is now available to everyone.
> People who attend will begin with a "blank slate" and by the end of the day 
> will produce a fully operational standalone application that works on Mac, 
> Windows, and Linux. The courses build on each other and follow a 
> progression:
> -  Revolution fundamentals
> -  Important scripting concepts
> -  Manipulating text and data
> -  Working with the file system
> -  Orchestrating multimedia content
> -  Exchanging data over the Internet
> -  Lightning-fast database processing
> -  Migrating from HyperCard
> -  Building a standalone executable
> Not only that, but those who order before March 31 will receive a free copy 
> of the conference DVD, which contains all the sessions from the conference, 
> all the sample stacks, etc. (It does not include the non-disclosure day, 
> though.)
> In other words, you'll get an intensive day of instruction presented by the 
> best and brightest people in the community (people who have been helping out 
> on this list for YEARS). As the mailer states, this is a great opportunity 
> to achieve "liftoff" for programming. Because not only do you get the 
> in-person training, but you also get a DVD you can take home and review what 
> you learned on that day... PLUS ALL THE OTHER SESSIONS held during the 
> conference. That's an incredible amount of content... a great value. Anyone 
> who is interested in better comprehension of Revolution will benefit 
> immensley.
> As stated by others, "learning" is not "mastery" -- if there is such a 
> thing. Learning hopefully is a lifelong process. We don't promise that you 
> will be able to single-handedly build an Office Suite at the end of the day. 
> We do promise that you will acquire the experience you need to begin using 
> Revolution effectively. I think the content of the mailer elaborates on this 
> clearly.
> To the extent the subject line of the email is slightly 
> provocative/controversial and got people to open it to learn more, I'm not 
> apologetic. :) Having said that, I also think it's accurate and if what 
> you're doing there is not "learning" I don't know what is!
