The backgrounds will be varied. The pool of people will be those that

There will probably be a laptop and a desktop with a 20 inch montior.
I'll have access to an overhead projector. I'd like to rent a lcd

I'm not sure yet how much variety I'll have as to showing different

it won't all be technical training and demos.
