Composite Material EdX course in September

I came across this course on the edX site and looked like a fun introduction to composite materials. I've been champing at the bit to try a MOOC on edX and there seems like some great stuff there.

Tona Boards with Dereck Comancho and Dre

Nice video talking to a veteran designer. Dereck's website when he was making boards under his own name was one of the first sites that I came across when I started studying board making at the University of Google:). His site has lots of good technical details about design characteristics and you can see in this video that this is still his focus. Translating what Dre's 'feel/ the vibe man' of a boards handling into a solid design is no doubt quite a challenge and no doubt necessary part of the dark art of board building.
