I am a very long time emacs user (~25 years) (mind you, I'm an even
longer vi user... ;-) but even I didn't start using org-mode until
recently (last year).  I did try it a couple of years ago but wasn't
impressed for some reason.  In the meantime, I started using planner,
muse and todo.  I'd used outline-mode for quite a while.  Anyway, I
subsequently ran across Carsten's google tech talk and I decided to
try org-mode again.  What a difference!  I think having used all these
disparate tools, each with their own way of working, and then finding
that org-mode essentially handled all of them in a consistent manner
was a huge selling point.

Essentially, what I'm saying is that Carsten's tech talk is one key
advertising element we should ensure stays prominent wherever possible!
