Ideas:
-Can we have a testdrive hackathon?
-make sure everyone is on the WhoWeAre wiki page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/WhoWeAre)
-re run some classroom sessions, try and get more people to watch them (phill and i had three people and meetingbot)(i think we've already planned this)
-publish before the classroom session a video related, so peoples can have an idea of what we are going to talk about.
-evaluate to split the sessions in timezones or when peoples aren't busy or tired (this thing can be better done at a local level)
-restabilsh and pullup the local iso testing teams, detaching them from the local community and makes it part of the testing team (I became to think that we don't have enough poeple);-).
