Subject: Org-mode screencasts

Hi All,

I think it would be helpful to create a series of screencasts to
demonstrate Org-mode.  The screencasts I've made for MobileOrg[1,2]
seem to have helped users get started quickly.  There are so many
powerful features of Org-mode that are difficult to visualize yourself
using until you can see them in action.  It may also help draw in new
users who otherwise wouldn't quite get it.

Some topics that may be interesting:

- Org-mode in action, demonstrating common tasks like capture,
restructuring a tree, refiling, etc.
- Babel
- Integration with other tools (Gnus, WL, Firefox, etc)
- Clocking/reporting
- Export capabilities
- Power user showing their streamlined configurations
- ...?

I'd like to collect all of the videos in one place, unify them with
some similar (but simple) production, with each of the videos having a
page that links to documentation, Worg, example dotfiles, comments,
etc to help the user take it further on their own.

I'd be happy to host the videos if bandwidth is a concern on the
orgmode.org site.  I've also already purchased the necessary software
to record/edit the videos.  But I'm looking to the community for ideas
on topics as well as individuals who would be willing to record the
videos or at least help me work up a script with key talking points so
I could do the recording and narration.

What do you think?  Anyone interested in helping?

Thanks,
Richard
