V Prize Workshop Slides

The V-Prize folks promised to post the slides from the recent V-Prize workshop, and it looks like they're there. The topics address questions like

What is the 'V'?
Why Virginia?
Why have a suborbital point to point prize?
What is the status of the V Prize effort?
What should the rules of the prize be?
How will the prize money be raised?
What's the schedule?

However, some of these - especially the rules and financing - remain questions, at least as far as the slides are concerned. Presumably they were discussed in the workshop (in fact Will Pomerantz's post gave some insight into these discussions).
