Folks,
  a view from the peanut gallery of 3 somewhat different areas
that Scipy-central, cookbook, docs.scipy, stackoverflow cover well /
not so well:

1) Q+As
2) code recipes, a few pages with some test and """ doc """
3) narrative overviews, slides, talks, FAQs on
    3a) basics: indexing, plotting, linking to cython/c ...
    3b) area overviews: cluster fft integrate interpolate io ...
    Some of these


1) Q+As are I think well covered by stackoverflow, so don't reinvent
that wheel
    (although I liked advice.mechanicalkern.com)
2) there are quite a few sites to put up recipes
    but 100 unsorted recipes do not make a cookbook
    even with a snazzy cover.
    Sure user feedback, comments, weeding, organizing are important
    but weeding and sorting scipy.org/Cookbook is difficult-to-
impossible,
    not happening. (Don't see what copying the lot would gain us.)

3) narrative overviews are not the topic of this thread
    but seem to me a need, an opportunity.
    Are there pages on scipy.org that collect the best
    slides, talks, screencasts, FAQs, Wikis
    with expert comments and critical reviews ?

cheers
