Hi Wobbe,

I've been using Blender in the art department at long beach city college for the past year. I'm planning on attending siggraph 13 and would love to participate in the session to share my experiences. We also offer a suite of open source alternatives on our systems. 

I'm new to the Blender education list and fairly new to Blender. While there are challenges to using open source in education, I think there are some great advantages especially for fine artists working with technology. 

Thank you,
