I would suggest we set budget for two major efforts.

- Enhance and update the wiki
- Build a well designed website that fronts the wiki

(1) Reserve 50-100k for the wiki alone. These funds are for two contract 
         a)  Technical contract hire to help administer the wiki and add 
editorial controls so we use standard tools to maintain the content of 
the wiki. These are not currently enabled.
         b)  Technical contract hire to help re-organize the content of 
the wiki where needed and/or help use the editorial tools to drive 
community updating.

(2) Reserve 30k to contract hire a designer (or leverage Hugo) to build 
a front end website of modern look and feel (for web and mobile browsers).
         a) Matt Konda is already working on a new front-end structure 
for the website, this is well under way and looks solid from what I see.
         b) Redesign of Matt's new web front end

 should be done by a 
professional designer, I suggest a pro web designer who can handle 
reactive design, but leveraging Hugo is also a viable option.
