It use to be that the “media” was a category, and if you hovered over it you would see:
In that regard nothing much has changed, but behind the scenes it has. The best example is to look at the Photography; currently looks like this in the main section:
I could not do that with the old way. Might also switch the “media” page from a blog style to an area index, best example of that is the Series’ area index.

I am also working towards developing a system/program/service so that we can quickly and easily build and manage personal hubs for other people.
Well, there are more advanced version of some of the page templates we are using here that have been developed, so converting to that, not sure if before or after that the whole theme will be updated to a more modern version. I know I want to use the Featured Content Gallery as opposed to the current tabbed, simply because it is more interesting visually & helps hide if I have not updated in a while.
