Yes, but maybe it's a case of pooling our talents.  E.g. you're
especially good at the narration but, I might be able to help with
others on ideas and scripts.  Other people might want to do storyboards,
and so on.

I'm not too sure about the different ways of bringing this about, but
I'm sold on the idea that these screencasts are important enough to
deserve more of my time at least, if what I'm hopeless at can be done by
other people.  Maybe this collaborative approach would benefit from the
screencasts having its own list/forum, but, again, I'm not too clued up
on this.
