I personally prefer MoinMoin because exactly its simplicity and better/simpler 
support from infra. Confluence certainly looks nicer and is easier to create 
nice looking pages with, but I don't find that a benefit really as I think the 
main and user-oriented content should be on the main site. But I'm not against 
choosing Confluence either, as long as we keep the purposes of what belongs to 
the site and what on the wiki straight and clear.

I like the suggestion you just send of a mountain with streams coming together 
into a river front.
I will also ask at the office if I can 'borrow' our new UI designer to come up 
with one or two suggestions (no promises yet: he's *very* occupied).

4) We need to provide our first Incubator report [5] by tomorrow. I don't have 
time left today to draft something up, but if nobody else beats me to it before 
tomorrow evening, I'll can write up something simple (we only got started, not 
much to report anyway).
