Hmm, wouldn't we want to use the color version of the logo on the web  
site? I like the colored logo better. Personally, I think it'd be good  
to have the cave drawings in the background to fade out as they  
approached the logo, this way the logo would be rendered against a  
flat background which would make it look more distinctive. What do  
others think?

We should also start a Grok art/media section on the site I think.  
It's be good to have vector and other full-size versions of the logo  
available for people to use, as well as some text laying out  
guidelines for how the logo/colors/style are intended to be used. It'd  
also be nice to gather up a page of "Community Artwork" with images of  
"alternate" and "original" versions of Grok, etc.

Plone filters out style attributes by default - I've turned this off  
for the time being to add this to the front page, but perhaps we  
should make a the front page a template to get around this, since we  
may want to turn the style attribute stripping back on if people are  
contributing content and pasting text in from an application that  
makes heavy use of inline CSS.

Switching the portlets is done. Yeah, the titlles just add extra noise  
- I did hide the "News" folder from the site navigation, so I was  
thinking about putting a small link to a "See all News" type of link  
next to the "Subscribe to this news feed" in the News portlet. I'll  
update this portlets soon.
