Could we do both?  Encourage new links to go to work.evolt.org (maybe a 
Permanant Link to this Entry sort of thing) while still allowing the old 
links to work correctly.  We can run google searches on our top rated 
articles, try to find inbound links to them and attempt to notify the 
people pointing to articles that the preferred url has changed.  Then, 
as time goes on, we can watch the inbound links and we'll see the www.eo 
links decrease in frequency.  At some point we can then decide to 
institute a 301 and everything will have been migrated without adverse 
effects on our page ranks.
