Teach me Seymour!

The people that I know, know a lot. Sometimes I am able to tap in their collective minds via direct queries, but that only scratches the surface of their knowledge on a particular subject. Most of that knowledge has been acquired as the result of a personal interest, not as the result of formal education. In fact, most of that knowledge can't be acquired through formal education.

Wouldn't it be cool if we found a way to share this knowledge more freely? Wouldn't it be cool if we could stage a series of lectures or workshops in order to allow other people to further their knowledge about a certain subject?

Subjects that I could teach or inform about are:
- Search engine internals;
- Microcontrollers and other digital electronics;
  - Embedded systems and DRM;
- Build and maintain your own hardware;
- Programming
  - in Visual Basic;
  - in Prolog;
  - in PIC assembly;
- Databases, datamodelling and SQL;
- Roleplaying games.

Are there things on this list that you would want to know more about? What is your list of things you could teach?
