At the TeX Hour we've discussed the beginner's experience over the past 10 months. Are we ready to make a difference? I think so. The focus of tomorrow's TeX Hour is what can those who are present do to help beginners over the next 3 months, 6 months and year.
Here's a 3 month program, in 4 steps. Briefly it's improving search and navigation of TeX help and advice.
1. Identify web pages beginners often visit.
2. Improve those pages.
3. Identify good pages for beginners.
4. Add useful links that point to those pages.
Why stop at logic? There's mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and all the way through to economics and sociology. I think that in 3 months we could create a useful LaTeX-for-X resource list. And that would be a good page for beginners to look at. And so perhaps we're well set to start the next 3 months.
We don't have to agree. My program is only a suggestion. All positive contributions welcome. All contributions listened to. Tomorrow's TeX Hour is primarily for those who have time and energy to contribute, so that they can help each other along the way (even if only by sharing experience).
