The Happening Now-bar: Yeah, I guess a plain sentence/ link is better. Having a little image in there would be nice, but not a necessity at all. For the Happening Now bar to be turned on or off, I'll have to think up some clever way to flag "there's nothing here". Making a checkbox in the admin panel is the hard (but best way to learn) way. It's one of those things that'll be part of Summer Games

My draft was just a very quick cut and paste-job to show how I visioned "the rest of it" when I started. It doesn't have to be copied 100%. However my idea was to have the page parted in clean 2's or 3's, or maybe even 4's. Easy to turn into a responsive design (pads, phones etc) and an easy CSS to maintain.

I agree that having descriptions on the horizontal articles would be nice. The current horizontals always felt a little anonymous. The article highlights section is something I think ought to be there, if not 3 stories, then at least 1. It's a nice way to draw direct attention to the things we're good at and known for. But that's just my 2 cents.

I'm glad it brought some workshop inspiration though

Two Content related things I noticed:

1) Should the "Archive" link switch from "About" to "Content"? The reason I ask is because I was looking for the archive and didn't think to look for it in "About", I was dead sure it would be in "Content" somewhere. Just a thought.
2) The Content > News & Updates (http://thelifestream.net/news/) now breaks the posts at "more". It didn't do so previously, iirc. Is it fine as it is now, or should we output entire posts?
