In a word: screencasts. 

Short, easy to digest, 2-5min screencasts on:


-Usage via curl

-Step by step walk through of all params in app.conf

-Search. setting up index, querying index via command line. Explanation of various analyzers. 

-Secondary Index usage. Curl examples. 

The whole thing could be done as a series With each cast its own "chapter." update the content when something significant changes. Like the changes in app.conf in 1.1.x.

The software obviously needs to solve enough problems for people to want to deploy it. However, we need to get the software into developers' hands before this happens.  So the question is:

I'm more interested in the other resources, tools, docs, processes, etc., that you think we need to put in place or refine to take the Riak community from 1000s of users to 100,000s of users. By virtue of being on this list, you've all spent some time using or investigating Riak. As such, you're opinions and experiences would be very valuable.
