I am toying with the idea of running a series of classes via Ustream on the basics of space image processing. I would have to do them at a time when I have child care (weekday mornings Pacific time), which would likely be a more convenient time for Europeans than Americans, but anybody who couldn't tune in live would be able to view the archived videos and/or download my slides and send me any questions by email, which I'd answer in the next broadcast.

But before I get started, I want to make sure that it will be worth the effort. Please send me an email to indicate if you're interested in embarking on learning how to process space image data!
