[unrev-II] Am I the only dummy around here?

I do not know how many people are trying to follow the colloquium (the figure
1200 sticks somewhere in my head). At any rate, there are about 135 on the
members list. Of these anout 35 participate on the discussion forum. Mostly
these are people living in California and, presumably, attendees at Stanford.
About ten of us live in well away from there, some of them perhaps even out in
the sticks.

I wonder how many of those who are seriously trying the follow the going-ons
online, have difficulties. Speaking for myself, I am stuck at Session 4 because
I can't understand what is said well enough to convenienty integrate it with
the slides, take some notes, and internalize it all. Online people don't have
the opportunity to meet with fellow attendees to quickly fill in some mental
gaps. And there are only so many hours available to sort things out. In short,
it is agony.

But I do believe that what is going on here is far too important to simply drop
it all. I wonder if I speak for others as well, or whether I am the only dummy
around here?

I desperately need good course notes or an efficient road map through the
material available online to follow the discussions. Emphasize "efficient."
