What about starting with a quote by Dr. Stefan Vollmar:

It's difficult to say what exactly Emacs' Org-mode will do for you;
it's easier to list all things it doesn't do


I'm not SO sure that it's difficult. Let me try:

Org-mode is a set of processors that work in the background of Emacs to
convert your text into action and your chaos into structure. With the
help of those processors, almost anything you type while using Org-mode
is already a computer program.


I very much like the phrase ┬ź... convert your text into action and your chaos into structure┬╗. Given Bastien's presentation, I think he would agree with this.

But, anyway, I stand by my statement that Dr. Vollmar's phrase is very good to intrigue would-be-users. I know it did it for me ---a couple of months old newbie. And thanks to org-mode now I'm also using exclusively AUCTeX for my work (copy-editor/typesetter).



Best
