Hi Ruud,
The way things show up on the front page is via the tickbox that says 
"Promote to front page" near the bottom of the create/edit forms. The 
default is set by content type. I think it's turned off for News items 
at present because when Jeff & I created them we were looking at 
aggregated news as a secondary feature of the site. So the item you see 
on the front page at the top now is the last one published with the 
option "Promote to front page" set.

Besides just having the distinction front page/not front page, we can do 
interesting things with the Views module to make a view containing 
headlines or teasers for a specific content type. These views can be 
normal pages or they can be stuck into Blocks, like the boxes on the 
right side of Manuel's latest mockup.

I think the title that you see at planetsvg.com right now would be a 
little more clear if maybe there were a headline over top that provides 
context?
