Sounds possible.  Some videos, like the Easy AI talk can take me ten
hours or more:  it has interesting code samples that demand being
typing in and tweaked.  Most others are summarized into a good review.
 Instead of a meet & watch, I'd be more interested in a weekly
breakfast at Hobbee's to each go over a video or two.
