To clarify, the speech recognition thing I was talking about was not HMMs.  
I used lda, qda and kmeans, which could possibly become a workshop later.  
Also the guy I was talking about is not a speech person, he does music.

There is an NLP paper I've been meaning to read about Markov Chains, so maybe
I could talk about that, or else I can work with Mike to assist in presenting
one of his topics.

Whatever you can do or imagine, begin it;
boldness has beauty, magic, and power in it.
