My little contribution to the current home page was this segment:

Take Part in the Innovation*Discover*Squeak's
. *Get Squeak*by downloading <http://squeak.org/Download/> it to your
computer.*Learn* the Smalltalk <http://squeak.org/Smalltalk/> language.*
Explore*the documentation <http://squeak.org/Documentation/>. *Join*the
community <http://squeak.org/Community/> to find common interests.*
Participate* in the teams <http://squeak.org/Community/Teams/>.*Stay current
*Read the latest news from The Weekly Squeak<http://weeklysqueak.wordpress.com/>

To me, it's the core of why there's a website. And, it quickly introduces
to the site visitor to what they can do next, in a linear, understandable
way, with what they've learned from their first visit. They are all action
items. The segment also, probably, answers most of the visitor's first

Maybe it could be the top left tile in your new grid of tiles? But, I'm
open to suggestions too.

I also think we can learn from looking at the home pages of other dynamic
languages' websites' home pages. but let me know if you've already done
that. I could suggest some things from them if you wish.
