 * Great idea. I hope I would be able to attend.

 * Also -- "Meet The Gimp":
   - Site URL -- http://meetthegimp.org/
   - Videocast link -- http://feeds.feedburner.com/meetthegimp

   It's a series of video lectures (current is #60) showing various
   tasks with gimp. The author is German so his English is very
   easy to understand (unlike somebody from e.g: Texas.)

 * For videocasts, one of the best tools is Miro (previously
   Democracy Player):
   - For people on that other OS: http://www.getmiro.com/
   - People on sane OS's:
         yum install miro
         apt-get install miro
         emerge something?
