Description

> * There was I think a bit of initial confusion right after students
> signed up for an account
> and logged in about what they could do.  I had to point out the "New
> Worksheet" link in
> the upper left to numerous students who were just sitting thinking --
> "hmm, what now?"
> Maybe when there are no worksheets, there should be a big button
> "create your first
> worksheet!"

In GMail, when the Inbox is empty, a message is displayed in the
center of the screen advertising Google Reader or Google News:

   No new mail! Want to read updates from your favorite sites? Try
Google Reader

(See it here: http://sevennine.net/post-images/empty-inbox-gmail.png)

I like it's simplicity and effectiveness. Perhaps the notebook can
display a similar message, something like: "Welcome to Sage! You can
create a [new worksheet], view some [published worksheets], or read
some [documentation]." (I'm using [] to denote links.)
