AUG 02011 foam site upgrade

there are 4 types of primary content; activities, events, publications, blog posts. other objects include static pages, people, 'supported by', studios, etc

an activity can be singular entity or grouping entity. one activity can be a part of another activity. an event, publication, static page or blog post can be part of one or more activities.

each activity/event/publication/etc should be able to be presented with related material (or links to it). an activity should include text (summary and body copy), slug (named url), a main image(flickr), an image gallery (flickr), 'supported by' line (including relevant logos) summary of people involved, summary of related stuff (events,publications,other activities). i think events, publications and blog posts are reasonably well specified already.
