Well done, it all looks *very* nice. Regarding Yesod: yes, use the
cube for now, I may eventually make a better logo, but that's it for
the moment. The only concern I have is the "practical web programming
in Haskell" page, which frankly isn't very practical. I personally
would put a big fat warning at the top saying most people do not
recommend using straight CGI these days.

One other possibility is putting together a tutorials section
(descending order by date) linking to various blog posts. But I think
you've done an amazing job on cleaning things up and getting it
presentable. A big thank you!
