Thank you for those valuable pieces of information!

A netmeeting is a VERY good idea. Perhaps that way, we could even extend
the brainstorming part of the strategy to a broader and international
level. Because after all, it is exactly the problem you depict i would
like to find a sollution to: How to give blender3d that "professional"
status? What would it take to qualify people, or give them a certificate
to teach. Perhaps such certifs already exist? And if not, it could be an
interesting and fair source of revenue for the blender foundation.

There are many questions that needs to be asked and answered before
anything can be done. Many of my own have perhaps already been asked an
answered 100 times before? However, i am definitely up for an online

Is this list a good channel for that?
