Comment (by karmatosed):

 I had a chat with @hnla about this and reached out to @modemlooper too.
 I'm thinking start with getting a few people involved and look
 specifically at the activity stream first then maybe custom headers (ala
 Twenty-Eleven) and a few other UI tweaks.  Here are my thoughts so far:

 - A different comment styling
 - Threaded javascript comments - collapsable possibly
 - Different activity type styling
 - Form styling
 - Tweak the background styling a bit probably with a border or something
 to make the site less default
 - Profile image fancy styling using some natty CSS transformations maybe?

 Possible UI changes - if get lots of people want to do this:
 - Custom / rotating headers - maybe include some ask for illustration /
 graphical / photo contributions in community (this may be nice to include
 to get others onboard)
 - Google or other fonts - this could be done to make it different from
 default easily
 - Blog post elements styling spruce up and changes - maybe a fancy
 blockquote style, list
 - Comment form styling - get it like use in activity

 Other thoughts / if get lots of people want to do this:
 - Profiles could be an area to consider if time
 - Forums could be good but again a 'if time'

 I'd suggest first up see how many are up for this then allocate various
 tasks / see who wants to do what and set a few week / 2 week deadlines.
 Then we can if time move into other areas.
