That is one of the first things I want to see when coming to the new network home page. It is completely hidden because of the giant buttons for each technology forum.
If you scroll all the way to the bottom, you miss it because there is a bunch of stuff at the bottom. Since that seems to be the only way to "discover" content, it really needs to be expanded and highlighted. I'd recommend moving it to the top of the home page (for authenticated users at least).
