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.

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/edu-sig/2012-November/010701.html

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.
