I've not planned it out yet, but I'd like to cover:

1. What is public key encryption?
2. Why bother?
3. The web of trust
4. Creating a key in GPG
5. Using encryption for email and IM

My experience to date has been using Thunderbird for mail and Psi for
IM, so I can demonstrate using those.

If anyone else with a PC there can help me out we can use that to
demonstrate encrypted communication.

If anyone wants me to cover anything in particular then drop me a line
on the mailing list.
