Hello everyone; sorry I have not been posting so much lately. But this
is a good opportunity to send out a shout to my fellow orgmoders.

I would like to thank Carsten for Org-mode, and also I should thank
all the other people he is thanking now (including myself!?) :-)

I'm planning a second, bigger org-tutorial that presents a particular
TODO system. It will basically feel like the system I used in my last
job---which demanded all the organizational skills I could possibly
muster every day for almost two straight years---plus some newer
things I've learned from reading about GTD and other methods.

In particular I would like to try recording an audio/video
screencast. I have seen some impressive ones on Emacswiki.

But first I have to finish the other (still Emacs-related) tutorial
I'm writing:

I'm also planning to integrate org support into my new (beta) Emacs
Lisp project ( http://dto.freeshell.org/notebook/Eon.html ). I will
definitely ask Carsten to help me interface them, as we did for
org-publish.el. 

As for org-publish, the new LaTeX support is nice. I'm not sure what
is coming next for org-publish.el, perhaps people can suggest ideas. I
can think of at least one: I want both the ability to export to LaTeX
(and then to PDFs with hyperlinks) AND to make a PDF whose styles come
directly from your CSS. At one point I was working with an HTML->PDF
exporter that had great-looking output; unfortunately it is
implemented as a PHP CGI, so you need to have Apache running even to
use it. I never could get it working properly with org, but perhaps
there are other programs out there now.
