Me three for Inkscape. I feel like I could definitely help out on the
teaching end of things too if I can just figure out what all those crazy,
though pretty, buttons mean from my Illustrator dayz (I still need to check
out the book Mitch recommended).

I'm also sort of driving myself through blender right now since I've got a
pretty serious carbon fiber structure to make in the mid-term future (and
I'd like to use blender to build the model to do the foam cutting). Its
going to take me some time to get up to speed tho - all my 3D experience
comes from CAD packages, and blender is totally not that...which makes it
awesome.
