would it be an idea to post galaxy objects on myExperiment.org? It seems
like a good place to share these types of workflows and histories. Although
now mostly used by Taverna users, any kind of (scientific) digital object
can be placed there.

I have heard from jgoecks <http://bitbucket.org/jgoecks/>
team are working on a repository for all galaxy objects. I would like to
suggest that all workflows that are shared publically (published) have a
mandatory field that briefly describes their functionality and that the
repository have search functionality which enables a search of published
workflows using this field. I am sure their are loads of great workflows out
there which are either immediately usable or are easily adaptable. Getting
access to such workflows would also be an excellent way to learn Galaxy in a
complementary way to the screencasts.
While we are waiting for such functionality, perhaps Galaxy developers
could set up a simple page where the public histories / workflows can be
posted. The simplest solution might be just a check box on the sharing page
("post link to publicly accessible page"), alternatively just a piece of
text on the sharing page encouraging users to manually post on specific
forum or mailing list.
