[racket] Discussion of racket on HN

There are some semi-new media skills for reading this kind of online forum.

Which skills an individual reader employs depends on their goal in 
reading the forum (e.g., seek out particular information you suspect 
might be there, skimming for anything that looks interesting/relevant, 
idle distraction while bored at work or somewhere that you can't do much 
else, various amusing tribal rituals like on Reddit, etc.).

(We employ baby versions of these skills, when monitoring the Racket 
email lists throughout the day.  Even though most of the content here is 
on-topic, I'm still skimming, at best, and occasionally bookmarking 
interesting stuff to look into later.)

Anyway, HN attracts a smart bunch of programming enthusiasts, and I'd 
love for more of them to start using Racket.
