Thanks! I would still suggest we take the first section of about_grok 
and replicate it on the home page. I believe this is a better 
introduction to Grok than what's currently in the first section of the 
home page, as it doesn't go into Zope 3 right away (as we took pains to 
avoid for the 'about grok' page :).

I think the text on the 'What is grok?' section is still valuable 
though. Perhaps we can fold it into the 'Grok from a zope 3 perspective' 
section on the about page?

This is really fun! We should include some of these on our grok.zope.org 
pages. So far I've seen three interpretations of the campfire one, by 
the way:

* Your own: grok enjoys waking up and starting a fire

* the commenter on flicker saying: Fire, fire!

* today when I showed this to someone, he interpreted it as "It works!" 
(the fire, I presume, in some kind of mad scientist scream).

I like how this little image allows three different implementations of 
what's up. :)

Talking about images, I'm thinking about a way to illustrate the 
tutorial. We would need a bunch of small Grok images in various poses 
relevant to the tutorial. What those poses should be I'm still not clear 
about. Guess we need to go through the tutorial and look at places where 
a little Grok in some pose would make sense. Any ideas?
