Sort of a private Python slashdot without the lame comments from the 
know-nothings. That's an interesting idea.

See the "tagged items" in my .sig and compare with the holdenweb.com 
front page - we could also use such a system for front-page news. It's 
all pretty easy with AJAX - no site rebuild is required as the news 
changes. I just run a script and upload a new file.

The voting by "a community" is a most valuable part of this suggestion.
