That's a huge topic with me, don't think there's any one of the 10,000 posts on the plan that completely says how *I* would do it, plus others will do it differently. Right now, we're too busy making it happen to put down our tools and explain to the tourists, but stay tuned and all will become clear.
If you really wanna to hear some of my polemics against Calculus Mountain in a conference setting, like at NCTM but different, then I recommend my performance on Showmedo from last year's Pycon (2008) in Chicago. There's also video from my longer presentation this year (on Blip.tv), but much of our thinking only goes to paying customers whom we're sure have a real interest in carrying the torch forward.
Probably the most relevant thing to take away from this thread is we have a lot of smart people in the loop, including in your duly elected civilian government (with military advising sometimes). We're hoping to unveil a lot of goodies, help get people more motivated to self school some more, as a lot of the best jobs are still ahead of us. I'm only managing a small piece of the show, but from my angle it appears we're going gangbusters.
