an exciting idea.  Could you elaborate Dan on how you would make such  
a collaborative exercise

I've noticed, in 19 years on the net, that the basic user gets closer  
and closer to being real-time... it's a  long way (though the  
underlying protocol is the same) from UUCP emails  to MSN Messenger  
with live webcam.  (sorry for mentioning Messenger, but I guess it's  

The more interesting web structures now for me are those that mix  
real-time and non-real-time capabilities, through file-locking and  
other means; we need to consider in the case of an Open Colorist  
Academy on the net that someone in Zagreb may not be available at the  
same time someone in LA is giving advice or demonstrations.

So just off the top of my head, I would say the TIG Wiki could be a  
place to start; another thought would be, is there any chance that  
software manufacturers would be willing to provide multiple  
screenshots, (dare I say simulators?? that would be the best, and I  
can think of ways to design a server-client structure for low-speed  
demo purposes.... how about a simpler idea: tap the monitor output of  
"software system" (where "ss" is Lustre, Baselight, Chrome, etc.) and  
record some presentation videos to stream on the net from the TIG  

The TIG itself is something of an open academy, and the Wiki takes it  
a little further... the idea of an interactive Open Colorist Academy  
on the net  just might mean some extra programming time, (it's that  
"interactive" part that would consume a bit of time).
