Laura, thanks for this link.  The (long) article/presentation is quite thought
provoking re using layout instead of interaction to effectively communicate
information.  The contrasting used, showing a "before" and "after" view of a
page is neat -- I've seen a lot of those "before" pages around the net. ;-)

I struggle to master graphic design and presentation, being more of a
programmer and engineer in mindset than an artist, but I keep at it because of
the leverage it gives in communicating.  Some of the ideas in the article
would be useful on our www.python.org site, if we could figure out how to
apply them effectively.  And certainly they are valuable in designing
educational activities for the XO/OLPC laptop.
