When a visitor comes to www.webplatform.org, there's no direction 
indication that this is a community project that they could join, with 
ongoing activity that they can see and participate in.

If we want to encourage visitors to join, we need to make our activity 
more visible. I propose that we replace the current layout of the www 
page with one that exposes more of the community aspect of the site.

I've done an extremely basic mock-up to give an idea of what I have in 
mind. I am so not-a-designer that I do wireframes in a spreadsheet tool.

What do y'all think of this idea? There is a certain amount of coding 
required to support this, but it could be done incrementally (e.g., blog 
feed first, then discussions, then events).
