Sites and Templates
Use the top level site as a "front page" for rolling up information held elsewhere dependant on the user. Use the Audience capability in Sharepoint for information targeting (eg News).

Playing guitar tonight with some friends in an Open Mic night. Don't really know the songs that well, really hoping I can wing it.
