Welcome Scott!

I too think this is a fantastic idea.  Please put it on the Noisebridge 
wiki so people can start thinking about it, even if you don't have a 
specific date or precise syllabus yet.  I'd very much like to attend 
such a thing myself, I only recently heard of Processing but I've seen 
some people do some cool stuff with it.  Also I have a projector I can 
loan for the class.
