Agreed. Do you think this could be done by listing the subdomain links
in such an order that things likely to interest newbies are first?

Those would be at least:

- learn/docs
- news/blog
- libs/pkgs
- events (in the future, if not already)

I like all of these ideas.

So we'd have events.scheme.org. I agree that's a good idea. IMHO we
should have both singular and plural for each subdomain, with one
redirecting to the other. This would give us event.scheme.org as an
alias, and a natural subdomain foo.event.scheme.org for each event.

However, workshop.scheme.org reads very naturally. We could redirect it
to the schemeworkshop.org which already exists. In fact, we should ask
the people behind schemeworkshop.org for their opinion and to sync
things up with scheme.org so everyone agrees to the result.

workshop.event.scheme.org is quite long.

Can we aggregate essays first published elsewhere? Don't many of the
"Planet" sites do that?

Since we won't have a large number of user groups even if we include
Lisp/FP groups, could we also feature them on events.scheme.org instead
of having a separate subdomain just for user groups?

Gloating for a good cause :)
