you are getting pretty much into the land of 'private published  
specialty material'
By that I mean that your topic will be something discussed by an  
author in one of his books, rather than covered where Google can index  

You can try   'not hidden'  or  'visible'

I don't know your time frame, but
   you could visit the sites of a few JQuery gurus, etc and ask the  
question directly.
Another source is a JavaScript or JQuery forum where the moderators  
will know or point you in the right direction.

A third idea is to join one of the LISTSERV groups.  These threads  
aren't usually indexed by Google since they are strictly email based  
and not picked up by Gmane, etc.
   You can search/join here

Hope this helps.
