I like the blurb on staging, but I think that the *next* thing should be
suggested further-reading links for new interested people rather than
dumping them straight into stuff that's more of interest for seasoned
Schemers.

My hunch would be to have "events.scheme.org" as a big calendar of past
and future events, each getting their own subdomain to handle as they
see fit (so the central admin burden is just managing that list). The
front page should have a link to events, but highlight some very
recent/current/upcoming events, ideally without any extra work from the
main page maintainers - events.scheme.org should provide an RSS feed of
the "current" events.

I think we should have an overall "events" thing that workshops and
other events are all part of.

Yeah

I don't know. Do we want to host essays, or just link to essays others
have published around the Web?

Agreed.

Yeah, let's spread the love and foster inclusion!

Ha! I'm being paid to write in Chicken as we speak (sorry, I just can't
help gloating...)

Otherwise, I heartily second your suggestions :-)
