Would you attend a class/lecture covering the mechanics and influence of Bitcoin in layman's terms?
How much would you value a series of talks covering the many aspects of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency world in a classroom type setting?
Please answer honestly. If "free" is really the only way the majority will go, I'll still do my best to make it happen, but it might it might take a while and we might end up in someone's backyard snacking on chips and soda.
On the other hand, if enough are willing to support this financially, I can easily secure a space to optimize the experience and supply a real meal for attendees. I believe there is enough exciting history and current development to deliver an hour's worth of material followed by questions and answers on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.
Of course, it goes without saying that I will take the responsibility of providing useful and interesting information seriously no matter how full or empty the coffers.
