Please do! It is not important if it is to my taste or not. Why should it? If you do it you decide how it is done. That is exactly what we always try to explain. A community lives from its contributors and its shape is defined by whom contributes. Proposing work that someone else should do does not work.

No, I don‘t want to do and it wasn‘t my proposal.

>>> There is currently 1006 tasks (mini projects) implemented in 764 programming languages. Pharo is nowhere to be seen there, besides the programming language entry on the wiki for Pharo still points to pharo-project.org. This project has the advantage of exposing programming languages with small tasks/problems any newbie can work on.  You always have the option to compare how it's done in your favorite language with the one you're trying to learn. Rosetta.org is often a useful and popular source for people wanting to learn a new programming language by starting with some simple problems.

>>> 2) Hacker Public Radio (aka HPR)
>>> 
>>> This podcast has a big audience and lots of loyal followers. Anyone can create a podcast and upload it there for broadcast. Normally, 99% the podcasts are related to computer science, programming and technology.  It is a well-known and respected podcast as they have already created over 3000 podcasts already (it's a daily podcast)! They are very flexible on what you can talk about and pretty lax on the format : as long as you talk about something you love and that could interested other, it's fine with them!

>>> 3) FLOSS Weekly
>>> 
>>> Another well-known podcast with lots of listeners! They've already covered Squeak and Seaside (long ago) but they haven't talked about Pharo yet.  Randall (Schwartz) is always looking for new guests and new subjects so I'm pretty sure having a podcast about Pharo would be easy and quick!

>>> 4) CLBG
>>> 
>>> The Computer Language Benchmark Game is another good place to get exposure. BUT I suggest we wait a bit before publishing code there as, obviously, we won't get good numbers as compared to other languages...  Let's wait for Pablo to finish his threading stuff in the VM first...  ;)
