Well, they make the wannabe-designer mistake of using justified text
in HTML, even worse, for columns just 3 words wide.
The overall layout, is pretty nice though. It's essentially the
standard Web 2.0 layout (compare http://basecamphq.com/,
http://www.blinksale.com/, http://www.analysis-one.com/, etc.). The
key design elements are (IMO):
- Put the important stuff at the top and separate it visually from
the "other stuff". The important things are: (1) the quick summary
of Haskell, (2) the "Get Haskell" button, (3) link to "Learn Haskell"
/ "Try Haskell"
- We may have a second row/column of secondary important stuff, like
community, project hosting, more implementations, the top learning
materials, etc. links to Haskell users
- News, Events, etc. can go further down
I'm not particularly attached to any particulars of my suggested
design. I just thought I'll try to encourage to move away much
further from the current wiki-like and somewhat dull design.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
