I'd suggest we look at building up a collection of materials here at
W3C (using the W3C mailing list, mercurial etc.,), and then work to
make sure that those files are replicated elsewhere (I don't know
MirrorService.org, but I was thinking of Archive.org). I don't mean to
discourage you from making a site, but since W3C's site is likely to
be around for a while and is the host for our discussions, it seems a
good hub to begin with. Once we have a collection of 'raw materials'
there is all sorts of scope for new 'story telling', introductory and
educational materials - perhaps that would fit with your plans?

cheers,

Dan
