I'm watching his linear algebra series. Illuminates some very obscure

Have you ever watched a ZBrush tutorial in ZBrush itself? I think a
great use-case for squeak would be to create ZBrush level tutorials with
2D and 3D graphics (including replayed Cobalt) combined with video and
sound and distribute them as files, rather than as part of the image.
With a safe web plugin, you could have a squeaktube site (hmmm better
name needed?) for streaming educational stuff.
