I hope Chris is just being polite when he says a wee bit smaller.  To me the
podcast logo completely dominates the whole page and I find it hard to look
anywhere else.  The logo is even more intense on a netbook.

The Ubuntu-UK logo would be fine on the right hand side if there was nothing
on the left, as with the Ubuntu.com site.

I am afraid the podcast logo hypertext link even encroaches on the text
around the logo - so clicking on the text "What is Ubuntu-UK" or "Who is
this group four ?"  takes you to the podcast  page.

I am interested to see want content is exposed on the site, I assuming that
the content on there is currently a strawman for ideas as its basically the
same as the http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam site.

Do we all share the same idea of what our main audience is for the site?  Is
this for people who are already part of Ubuntu UK or is it also for the
general public?  It suggests on etherpad that this site is mainly a resource
for the team by my reading.

Thank you.
