One thing I want to mention---people get you and I confused because
our websites look almost exactly the same. Maybe one of us should make
a few tweaks to the CSS, otherwise people will keep sending org.el bug
reports to me :-)

I used a bit of elisp to make the screenshot process easier.  It makes
numbered screenshots using ImageMagick (i.e. the "import" command.)
You may need to tweak things for your system.

I could probably do one of these, especially in regard to Eon. A big
part of the Eon idea is to make some really interesting things happen
with large databases of many org-mode files, which have embedded lisp
data. I am building a sort of annotation system that can read various
org-mode data/properties/timestamps as well as embedded lisp data in
an Eon-specific format. This is the further development of the Linkd
and CellMode ideas and I'm pretty excited about it. 

Hey Carsten, it would be interesting to hear your feedback on 
the ideas written up at http://dto.freeshell.org/notebook/Eon.html

There is some working code, but not quite usable yet...
