Post here your thoughts on how the wiki should be organized initially.

For example, what sort of major categories should we emphasize on the index page?

CODE
|
|    
|    
|    
|
'-- Video
  |
  |-- digital video general definitions
  |-- mpeg4 definitions and usage of specific implementations
  |-- avisynth scripting examples and usage in general
  |-- containers (avi, ogm, matroska, etc)
  |-- video editing, special fx and 2d,3d animation - (not just the tech stuff)
  |-- video hardware
  |-- DVD (encoding, transcoding, authoring, mpeg2)
  '-- video misc


(note: wikis in general seems a bit confusing to me, but this one seems even weirder, anyway, i hope ill get to write something after few years staring at the syntax (j/k))
------------------------------------
other than that , imho the key to success is to have a really good starting navigation for the whole thing, one should be on the correct place with no more than 3 clicks.
------------------------------------

so entry points, based on this thread, could be:
------------------------------------
hydrogenaudio.org objectives and/or goals
-audio compression for newbies (usage of tools and explanations of basic priciples)
-audio compression formats
-audio hardware
-audio advanced topics
-video

(use some sort of color codes for defining where one is at specific point, or maybe some icons - based on this entry points, ugly example:

)

I agree. I think maybe we should organize things into top level categories on the page first, maybe like:

Audio Software
-->Encoders/Decoders
-->Rippers
-->Players
-->Editors
-->Testing Software
Audio Hardware
-->PC Audio
-->Hi Fi
-->Digital Audio Players
Audio Theory
-->Digital Audio
-->Encoding Technology
-->Testing Methodology
Other Topics
-->Video

I'd also like to have some sort of general resource in there for development too, like how to get started in coding audio tools, what some good libs are, where to find algorithms and information, etc., etc.
