Uh, yeah, that's pretty much correct.  I for one volunteered my time to
record this:


In answer to "john_re" (john regex?), this service is provided by those
of us who can take time to do the work, which involves preparation,
onsite filming, and (usually) lots of followup.  If you can find someone
willing to do so, you're golden.  We help when we can.

By the way, I did a Python tech talk in Ann Arbor last week:


If I were in town next month - and not moved to New York - I've give the
same talk at BayPIGgies.  I'll make sure the next one I do gets put up
on Google Video.
