It's a great topic, but I thought this week was OS/9 part II.  I assumed 
people were already gearing up for a different topic.

That said, I am happy to help, I have 2 webcams, a camcorder that can be 
routed through a digitizer to the pc, and a microscope that can be 
pulled into skype to show boards and such.  And, I think I can show 
Xilinx ISE on my screen and write some Verilog.  Ed Snider might have a 
similar setup he can offer, or Mark McDougal (I know that's wrong, but 
can't see his name in my inbox right now).

I cannot show an FPGA right now (I can, but there's little more to show, 
it's a bigger chip, but the tools are the same, and my dev board is in 
use and not easy to demo right now)
