I agree! Are you volunteering to give one? :)

Please do contact me privately (and bug me!) to get slides out of me. I 
have them in a variety of formats and states, but hopefully we can 
distill something reusable from them. I've been using OpenOffice for a 
while for slides, but I'm now looking at using Bruce (which now supports 
ReST, which I like).

One thing that happens occasionally (perhaps once a year) is that I'm in 
Singapore for a while (my wife is Singaporean). New Zealand might just 
be closer to the realm of possibility from there. :)
