Kalosyni's recent post about doing some forum reorganization is a good time to point out that we're always going to need multiple ways to access information so it can be found quickly. Recently we implemented the "Navigation Map" on the front page, and of course the "Forum List" is itself an organized structure for filing things. We don't make an extensive use of "Tags," but that feature is available in addition to the "Search" page. It's also possible to search the forum using google (or any other search engine) and combine EpicureanFriends.com as one of the search terms. Here's an example of such a search.
For my personal use, I always continue to work on a personal outline with the aim of quickly being able to zoom back and forth between the big picture and the individual details, including citations. The latest version of this outline is here, and I am happy to release it for public use and comment. I intend to continue working on this format to increase the level of detail and improve the citations, some of which are not yet finished at all, so I welcome comments in this thread that I can use to improve it.
I frequently move back and forth between software programs as to how to make this more effective, and I'll probably take the same data over time and release it in other formats. In the meantime this format is probably going to look best on a cellphone/tablet "portrait" format, rather than a wide-screen computer display. I think the purpose of an outline like this is consistent with the idea of using it mainly on a portable device, so this format should work well for that screen size. Over time we can fiddle with the html if desired and make it more attractive.

Here's a version where a word-search on the page works much more easily. The collapsible version now has a link at the top of the page which will take you to this "alternate" page view.
To repeat: additions, subtractions, clarifications, suggestions, etc., are welcome, especially as to citations to include under each bullet point. This will always be a "work in progress."
