    So in our union contract at work, each employee gets $1500 to spend on any training they wish, NOT work related, so long as it has some base in 'technology'...


    So, gimme some ideas... I'm down for anything...

    Basic photon physics. Should be a cool class and will go alone with photography really well.

    It's not a bad price at all.

    I just don't really have the need or desire to learn Maya...

    Do you have a link or something official on it though? There are a couple guys in the department that might be interested...

    I was hoping to keep it photo related...
