      One concern I have is that the videos could come across as self-promoting infomercials. It seems like the value provided by videos relative to the spacial dimensions devoted could be disproportionately low. Access to key content like the daily digest, how to file a complaint, and access to filings seems to be crowded out by videos, graphics, and blogs. Also, reading increasingly is a lost art, but I'm not sure we need to hasten its demise.

      There is a lot of valuable space devoted to videos. Is that necessary and does the value of the content merit so much space? What public interest is being served?

          I seriously question why we need so much front page space devoted to speeches/videos. This is probably better suited to a "meet the FCC" page. A better balance between function and aesthetics could be struck in the layout. Right now, it seems that aesthetics has been given the priority by far. And, as we all know, there is no accounting for taste. So, it is better to go with function. After all, this is a government website, not an infomercial.

            The daily digest should be more prominent.

                The scrolling banner pictures are too big. The black background is too stealthy.
