Initially I was going to complain that $1,200 is too much for stuff that we
regularly have for much less, and even for free.

E.g. OLF, FSOSS @ Seneca, and even Geek Toronto on 23th Oct.

e.g. http://fsoss.senecac.on.ca/2009/node/126

But this is a full day workshop, not a one hour talk.

In a way, it is good to have businesses willing to pay for this stuff.
