David, I love the idea!
I have been trying to wage my own personal fight against the TI calcs with my nieces and nephews, but I figured the battle was solely mine. It appears I'm not alone. My family knows of my love of HP calcs, and I have offered to buy HP calcs for any of my nieces and nephews if they wanted to experience "the other side" of things. So far a couple of them have taken me up on it, which I am very happy about.
However, I had not thought there were many other youngsters into HP calcs, and I love your idea. In fact, I love it so much that I'd be willing to put up a complementary site for the purpose of giving kids a place to talk about their calcs, share tips, etc -- all the things you've mentioned. I'd be willing to get the domain name, host it and handle the administrative side of everything, but I would seriously need to rely on other experts from here or other places to contribute content. If there are others interested in helping, I think we can really get something going.
BTW, I don't envision this as a competitor at all to the awesome resource we have here, but rather a sister site -- something for the kids to use and which could leverage resources, including this one.
So, I've thrown down the gauntlet. :-) I'll set it all up and get it going if there are folks willing to contribute. Anyone?
