The stripes on the background make it harder. The two images are unrelated
and only take away space. The scrolling of text with e.g. News feels
If something new, I would go for something realy new. e.g. news.cnet.com
has in the top two banners in 1/5th of the space everything you want to
get around on the site.

Once people have seen your site, a huge introduction and logo is not
needed. If you need an explanation on what a site is about, you are doing
it wrong. Use an 'About' button if you must.

Remind me to write an article on the compulsive reading of news. The
theme will be that most neuroses can be traced to the unhealthy habit
of wallowing in the troubles of five billion strangers. -- Heinlein
