This is actually a good opportunity to see damian give one of his more
practical classes. If you've ever seen one of his conference talks, you
know how great a speaker he is. I guarantee these classes are just as
good, if less... eclectic. :-)
Knowing Damian, I'm sure he'd be happy to do one of his seminars for us,
but a lot of us have seen most, if not all, of them, and he's done at

opportunity (given the amount of effort and time Damian has to put in to
come to NY and teach) to see something you normally wouldn't.
If you have any interest, please pipe up, as this will *not* happen
unless we make it happen. And, as far as I'm concerned, it's more than
