Thanks for collecting them! ;-)

Yup, actually Guile wiki was discussed few months ago. 
But it's delayed since I don't have idea about how to organize the text.
I wish there could be more guys get interested in Guile, say, after one
finished his/her SICP course, there'd be a practical way to do some real
work with the Scheme experiences, rather than just exercises or toy. 
I think Guile provides such a way, since it's not designed for fun or
academic, and it's getting important role in the future architecture of
GNU operating system. 

In spite of "learn xx in yy minutes", I found it's popular on "XX for YY
language programers", like this:
We may borrow something from Ruby (their community is so good):

However, we still provide topics like:
* "pro Guile" 
* "dig deep into Guile internal" 
* "design pattern in Guile" 
* "think in Guile" 
which maybe more profound. ;-P

Anyway, all above topics are worthy doing, but my concern is that we
still lack of more rich and big/huge code-base in real world to explain
the things in a convincing way.  
Fortunately, we have something on the way.

I'll pick "learn Guile in hard way", it's a good start for
"quick-learn-then-do" users.

But wiki is a huge work in long term way, we need more volunteer for
sharing. No matter articles or cool codes snippets.

Yes, I like it~
