We want to be pretty (and functional)
In our ongoing effort to look nice and provide simple navigation for users, we have once again re-themed (to Drupal's Newslfash theme). What do you think? What other ideas/suggestions do you have for improving the EdTechTalk interface?

great new theme
I love the new theming! Nice work people. The dynamicly resizing is impressive. I think the right column might be a little wider than necessary as well.
I hate to admit it, but the Google Calendar at the top and side is easy to understand. It does seem to be in Easter Standard Time (or does it do that just for me?), so maybe we should change it to GMT or indicate to people which timezone it's in. It also has a +GoogleCalendar link at the bottom, but what if you want iCal or RSS? Can it not do that? Come on Google, don't lock us in!
Also, the top navigation has a lot of stuff in it. Can we reduce that?
calendar in Pacific time for me
Wanted to echo Arvind's love for the new theme and to say that the calendar entries are in Pacific time for me.
I'm guessing that the width of the right column is twitter related.
Nice work Drupal elves--thanks!
I love the blues...
Great work, Jeff. I really didn't like the last theme. Good luck with the awards tomorrow!
Great job Jeff. I wonder if we should go ahead and make some of the menu items context sensitive too. I'd love to turn off the subscribe button for people who are already subscribed for instance. It'd be cool to also get some more 'looks' for different types of users.
Message to Pretty
I've finally taken a closer look at the site, and tried to consider it from a newcomer's point of view. I think we want to to be inviting, friendly, and easy to use. Here are a few suggestions:
Great Ideas - you're hired!
Would love to address these issues during the next Brainstorm and/or ETT 'community assembly' - perhaps during the Solstice Webcastathon.
