Hi,

I think, too, the new page looks very nice!

I am with Nate, that for the pictures, on the start page, less is more.
Having some there is really a great idea, to show that we are an active 
community
of people. But a few would be enough and we can have some sub-page with
pictures from our past events.

Technical side note: given one of our aims is privacy, do we really need 
the piwik stuff
or would normal web logs with statistics enough for our purpose?

We could aim to be a cookie free (and external resources free) site that 
doesn't track
people at all.

I am not that convinced we need the statistics that much.

Greetings
Christoph
