I would much prefer reading an article explaining the method than read through
the code. I've learned quite a bit reading code, but it's a bit slower and more
difficult than an article. What if we just encouraged prople who do something
really cool code-wise to write an article about it, or work with a writer to
draft an article? If it's not cool enough or important enough to become an
article, it could go into the tips&tricks section?

Since this convo is about the website, should it be moved to
lgdc-web@sunsite.auc.dk? (I personally think almost everyone on this list
should be on the web list, since we all have an interest in the website...).
