I think this is a fine idea --- maybe I'll be convinced that it's  
really useful.  =)

I thought Wave looked pretty overwhelming when I saw a demo a while  
back, so I haven't set aside any time to try it.  But clearly, it must  
be useful and I just need to understand it better.  Or, if it's not  
terribly useful, I also should understand that better too, beyond just  
one demo…

Looking forward to hear how the Wave users incorporate this into our  
web continuing ed process.  My main question is, do we want to project  
this on the second screen in 101 Walter during the meeting or is this  
more "off line" or post-meeting?

(and if we do project, would that be distracting?)
