I think your ideas definitely sound good.  One question I have is how  
to handle the languages.  Should it be only English, or should there  
be some Portuguese sessions too?

Perhaps we should set up a wiki page to start organizing it?  Things  
like ideas for sessions, time slots, etc.  It doesn't need to be  



If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
