For a while now I've been walking around with the idea to set up 
something of a pirate academy.

The basic idea is that we put up a livestream with someone giving a 
workshop regarding an issue, which could be nearly anything, and people 
can tune in, learn, and ask questions. The content could be nearly 
anything: how does one campaign effectively? How does wipo actually 
work? What are the details regarding issue X or Y? There is a lot of 
information sharing which simply doesn't happen effectively between us 
as is, and I hope such a format would help foster it.

So we make a sort of online college room where we can all tune in and 
learn these things from those amongst us who can teach the rest of us at 
a set date. I'm pretty sure everyone here has something to add to our 
collective understanding.

For now, this email is primarily a feeler email: who would be interested 
here in giving such workshops? Who would like to help me set up the 
aforementioned infrastructure? Who has an even better idea of how to 
realise this than the aforementioned online college?

Let's get started doing that bit we're allegedly have international 
co-operation for: sharing knowledge and best practices.

Hope you'll give it some thought,
