Thanks for posting this, have only watched the catalyst one so far. 
Even though it just re-covered the basics, there were still enough 
"connect the dots" sorta moments to make it a worthwhile refresher 
course for those of us who already know catalyst pretty well.  I also 
appreciate your focus on actually showing how to get work done with 
catalyst instead of just the usual showy "make a blog in 0.23 seconds 
with this framework!" sort of thing.

Quick question: at around 15 minutes in (while discussing TT) you 
mentioned the ability to set html scrubbing at a global level, and that 
there is something on CPAN to assist with this.  I poked around on the 
mailing list, in CPAN and in the TT / Catalyst docs, and didn't find any 
reference to something like this.

I am interested in seeing what you were talking about, as I am about to 
go through and add '| html' to damn near every variable in my templates. 
  Setting this behavior as default would be nice, since I *never* store 
any html in my variables (and I assume, if I ever did, I could specify 
where I *didn't* want to filter on a case by case).
