Hi Carsten,

Hi everyone,

today I looked at our tutorial page at


and came away with the feeling that that this page has become
somewhat useless for people who are really new to Org. 
- I disagree. Your Google talk was just right - for me. It was my first exposure to Org Mode.

Can we have a discussion here on how this path should look like?
When you came to Org-mode as a newby, what were the three resources
that really made an impression on by being accessible and
providing feel and promise for digging deeper?
About three years ago I stumbled across Org Mode when I was searching Emacs in general. (I already was familiar with Emacs, but only to "fool around".)
After viewing the Google talk, I specifically searched Org Mode. The three resources that made an impression:
- the general tutorials, starting with David O'Toole's,
- the Compact Guide with the Further Readings, (I did not look at the ones in the Org Manual) since this gave me a sense of how Org is and can be used, and
- the mailing list, which was the one resource that has made the greatest impression on me from the beginning. It has been and is my best resource; it provides the greatest exposure to Org Mode both as to its uses and sense of the Org community.
- Thank you Carsten, Bastien and all the rest if you for Org Mode.
