Hi everyone,

I spent a few hours today going through our wiki and doing some 
"gardening," cleaning up and restructuring the site. Take a look and let 
me know what you think:


The most important change I made was to consolidate all of our meeting 
information into one section. This is now the canonical place to go in 
order to find out what meetings and events are upcoming:


Anyone is able to edit these pages if you want to add a meeting agenda 
item or schedule a new working group meeting.

This is all just a start, and there's lot more work that needs to be 
done. If you can lend a hand, please let me know. I hope we can all take 
on the responsibility of regularly pruning and maintaining our wiki 
together. Here are some of the things that we need help with:

  * Selecting a new, easier-to-read skin for the wiki
  * Adding content and resources to key areas such as the designer's 
toolkit and the user experience page
  * Editing and restructuring of the UX Walk-through area of the site
  * Moving sections of the site into discrete spaces
  * General editing and tweaking of content and structure
  * Improving the visual design, layout, and information architecture
  * Ensuring information is timely and up-to-date

Sheila Crossey here at the ATRC has kindly offered to take on some of 
the writing and information architecture work for our web site. Gary 
Thompson at Unicon has volunteered his Confluence expertise to help us 
build templates that will make it easier to create and maintain content. 
Let me know if you can pitch in as well.
