Just to be clear, since I am just finishing the How To Get Help 
screencast, should I use the current URL for the screencasts or the 
(maybe) new in the slides?  If we get the new URL 
will we be doing a redirect from the old URL to the new one or will the 
old one be dead?

Also, I like the idea of syndicating the screencasts via RSS, but how 
will we negotiate between the two URLs?  Are we just planning to wait on 
that until we figure out where the site is going to be longterm?
