I think it's cleanly designed and well done as a website, but I don't
think it communicates what Merb is about.

When I think of Merb, I think of

* Built for speed
* Lightweight but Powerful
* Minimal core code augmented with plugins

I think we need more of a scientific/industrial look and less of a
fun, pastel look. Maybe even black/white, but definitely more toward
the feel of your designs for DataMapper ( ).

We want people to look at for 5 seconds and feel that
Merb is solid, capable, and serious. It's not something to mix with
ammonia, unless you're wearing a gas mask.

And we also need Louie on there somewhere.
