* What is Jabber? What is XMPP?
* What is the Jabber community?
* What resources are available?
  * How do I get a Jabber account?
  * What apps can I use?
  * Show me something cool

1 a) A technical person (developer / decision maker) that has heard about
Jabber / XMPP, but knows nothing about it

Start is same as above. Next is:
* where are some specs
* where is some sample code in my language / platform of choice
* what apps / servers / clients are already available
* what vendors / products are there
* how strong is the community

2) A jabber user returns to the site for information related to

* What's new with my favourite clients / servers?

I don't understand the bit about the MUC events. Are we running a global
directory of all chats that anyone on the Internet might run (like
Upcoming.org)? Or is this for Jabber-community related MUCs? In which case
it is not a Jabber user, but rather a Jabber community person.

I believe the most common visitors will be either of the "what is Jabber
type", or community members. For the former, we want easy overviews and
information about "what's new". For the latter, we also want "what's new",
as well as a way to interact/meetup/follow areas of special interest.

But, in part, this is not just "targetting". What features (yes, features)
do we, the community, feel we want / need?
