You might find it to be a lot like the famous rabbit hole that goes

way deeper than you first thought..
Yea. I can already feel it :)
You picked up Emacs pretty fast (I took months and still know only a
few things) but you still might find this useful.
And for Org mode: http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/index.php
Thanks for the links. You must have got started with emacs way back. I have the advantage of wealth of documentation that is there.. and I am kind of familiar with what to expect. Had heard a lot about this editor. Always wanted to try. But the comic http://xkcd.com/378/
and the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJTwQvgfgMM
provided the final push to swtich.
Interestingly, with Org mode you first use it to figure out the way
you work and then you use it to achieve "mind like water".

Ooops. Have almost always used google groups mailing list before. It has the list address in the to field.
