  • Collapse "Why" and "Principles" sidebar links into one?
  • Diagram of suggested home page.
    • Events promoted first, left main column
    • Latest news beneath it, more like a blog (content from news.indiewebcamp.com with post summary)
    • Right column with "What is IndieWebCamp" content

Jargon

POSSE, PESOS, etc. are jargon that should probably not be used everywhere.

Publish, Syndicate, Collect, and Federate are good, general terms to capture the main things people might come to the site wanting to do.
