I think why I need to drop my frequency of posting is this is an outgrowth of an NCTM list and the focus is very much K-12.
Although I teach full time and regard my content as STEM / STEAM, my typical client / student is not usually a minor.
My talk to the Portland user group on Tuesday was about "adult education" as well.
However, the overlap is here: teachers. I expect I will be teaching many teachers, and that's what I was doing at Pycon 2009 (how we billed the event, a co-presentation by another corporate trainer and myself).
That being said, I continue to be interested in and to have an investment in what goes on in K-12 and 13-16 (4 college).
My resolve is to post relatively more to the adult-focussed groups and relatively less to the kid-focussed groups.
