Hi Everyone,

I'd LOVE to join this interesting discussion but I have a very bad flu and
I can't sleep so thought to share my thoughts quickly.

BIG +1
It seems over the time, everyone is very eager to create Wiki, Update Wiki,
etc but it seems we have missed the point of making the Wiki Area very easy
to find.

 You read my mind, Carla :)
I have had this idea in mind the last cycle (Saucy) but had no time to
share it.

Long story short, I am the founder of TWO OneStopPage:

And, if you are interested, I can do the same with Ubuntu QA so One Page,
has it all. Newcomers or even current users don't need to bookmark many
links, don't need to keep searching, etc. OneStopPage, has each and
everything they need.

On a side note, for sessions and stuff:

+1 for Videos.
Visual Learning is very important and very effective. They say, "A picture
is worth a thousand words" [1] so can we all imagine what a video could do?

-1 to IRC
-1 to Wiki

When it comes to explain HOWTO Test.

The Wiki Area should only, IMHO, organize the work, etc. We are in 2013.
Let's get the best of the Technologies.

IRC for quick questions, etc.

I do hope you still remember our discussion at the vUDS when I told you
about that :) "Get the best of the Technologies." and I think it is a good
time to start discussing that again.

Just give me sometime to get rid of this bad flu and I can start my usual
activities ;)
