How much work would it to be to include the most recent moderate to major discovery (so 32P21 now) and change it every few days?
I would prefer a focus on patterns that are demonstrative of what's possible in Life, rather than patterns that are new. The way I see it, the home page should be an introduction for people who don't know much about Life. Anyone who would be primarily interested in the newest
discoveries will probably already know where to find them and how to view them.
If the "integrate with wiki" route is chosen, maybe one model could be that all of the relevant patterns could be stored as pages like
with each page giving the name and attribution and any comments as usual, with #N, #O, and #C comments respectively.
Then if just one of those however-many patterns was intended as a showcase of the most recent new discovery --
-- then the rest of the pages could maybe just be locked, but that one could be changed by anyone who wanted to edit it, whenever the next news item came along. Seems like even in a page geared toward newbies, it would be nice to give some sense of how completely new discoveries are still regularly appearing, even after fifty years of work with this rule.
