I tried adding a "Start here" section at the top of
<https://www.staging.scheme.org> but it has only two links for now. The
page looks a bit weird having subsections with so few links.

LGTM!

Good idea. The events.scheme.org front page could have a "Regular
events" section at the top or bottom.

Oh, you're conflating virtual groups with face-to-face groups. I guess
the latter do have their own virtual spaces also.

The staging frontpage now has a "Community" section linking to mailing
lists and events. Could add IRC, Reddit, newsgroup, and the like.

Should we have "chat.scheme.org" or "irc.scheme.org" for real-time chats
(currently IRC and Discord)? It would be fun if the IRC ports at this
subdomain could be made to redirect to Freenode somehow (I presume most
Scheme channels are on that network; we could also run a Scheme IRC
server but that would probably be overkill and done more for hack value
than actually being useful.)

It's worth pondering how to link to Reddit and Discord which are
commercial (mostly ad-driven?) services that probably track their users.

What's the easiest way to read usenet newsgroups nowadays? Are there any
good web-based alternatives to Google Groups?
