Class for new Ubuntu users in Boston area?

I've thought for a while that some members of the Boston
Linux community and I should teach classes for new Linux
users. Rather than pointing them at FAQs, we should sit them
down in front of their computers (or ours) and answer their
questions. Give them a few months to think of things about
Linux that confuse them, then bring their confusions to use
and have us resolve them in person. Mailing lists like this
one are great, and they helped me a lot as I was learning
Linux. But having someone help me in person (my friend Adam
was my guru) really sealed the deal.

So: is there anyone out there who's

1) within range of Boston, Massachusetts, US who
2) would like to take a (probably free, but maybe a nominal
   fee for materials) class on Linux For Newbies?

We'd probably schedule it for three months from now or so.
But this is all very tentative: this is the first time I've
really committed to running such a class.

I'm a very good teacher. :-) I think I'm good for newbies,

If you're interested, post your name and your email here:

And feel free to pass this link along to anyone else who you
think may be interested.
