In that case they would have little incentive to release this material as
they are in the business of conducting training and tutorials.

This is not my line of business and so I wasn't thinking of this as a
for-profit venture. It was more of a community service project in my mind.
However a nominal charge to recover production costs, (specially if CD-ROMs
are pressed) speaker's fees etc might be ok. The whole point was to make a
tutorial available to "the rest of us" and promote further use of mod_perl.
I wasn't personally planning on profiting from this other than the learning
experience at the 'feet of the gurus' :)

I used to feel the same way until I saw the SUN webcasts and Bruce Eckel's
"Thinking in Java" course. The slides/audio presentation works very well
over low bandwidth connections and would be cheaper to setup than a
streaming video server. Did you check out the links I had in my original
post? Just imaging that you are in a presentation in a darkened room where
you can't see the speaker :-)
