[users] Announcing Gemini Quickstart!

Hello, all. In conversations with friends where I've been trying to
spread the good news of Gemini, I've gotten the feedback that there
aren't really any easy-to-find Gemini resources for non-technical
beginners; people who may not have experience with Gopher or any other
non-WWW protocols, or who can't compile a client from source, for
example. I decided to meet this issue by writing one.

It starts on the web at https://geminiquickst.art/, and continues on
Gemini at gemini://geminiquickst.art/. It recommends a Gemini client for
new users based on their operating system, tells them where to download
it, and gives them some starts on finding things to read that are
relevant to their interests. There's also a section on publishing things
on Gemini.

I'd appreciate people sharing it wherever they share links, and to keep
it in mind for when anyone asks for such a guide. I welcome feedback,
and I would love to add translations.
