Hi Charles
    Is anyone looking into making presentation materials such as those used
by Liddy freely available for use by others?
    A colleague at UKOLN and I recently ran a half day session on metadata
and we intend to make the materials (PowerPoint files [plus HTML versions],
hands-on exercises and group exercises) freely available.  I think it would
be useful if something similar were done with WAI materials.
