Seminar suggestions for the JA-SIG Spring 2008 Conference

I think running the UCamp as a scheduled seminar or seminar pair is
a good idea (it occurred to me too). The only question is whether the
extra fee would be seen as a barrier to some. Would you be running
it? Would you have co-presenters/leaders?
Can you supply me with the description information so I can put it in as
1. Title - a phrase or one sentence summary
2. Description - approximately 4 - 5 sentences describing what a
participant can expect would expect to hear about
3. Length - whether you expect the session to be a half-day or
4. Pre or Post - whether you would rather see the seminar on Sunday
(pre-conference) or on Wednesday (post-conference)
5. Proposed presenter
