Greg I believe there is an open courseware group, and I thought you might have had a hand in starting it? URL?
Side note: years ago I had the chance to see Bill Gates at a Comdex, but the room was so full that I took a look and turned around and couldn't be bothered. He's just a guy. He might have been the world's richest guy, but he's no more special than most of the people who walk through our doors. The only difference is he has more influence, and that can always change.
