The ICFP boasting could be moved elsewhere (perhaps put the quote at
the very top under the logo), the rest of the items seem "regular"
enough to be popped off the news list just like any other HWN-type
The only regularly occuring news that really need to stick around for
longer are events announcements, IMO, and we already have a separate
feed for that right on the front page as well.
So, I think the best plan is to have the HWN stuff under "news" from
now on, keep the events feed, and put any other "important" news in a
case-by-case appropriate place (e.g. putting the "discriminate
hackers" quote somewhere on the front page).
