The transition from "Resource Library" to "Information Center" has 
caused quite a mess apparently. In addition to the animated demos of 
Map, Thread, etc., a nice collection of tutorials has also disappeared.

What's more, the new organization of MathSource leave much to be 
desired. Optimization and numerical methods in "Applied Mathematics" 
along with business and economics (!)  while differential equations, 
wavelets, approximation theory are under Calculus and Analysis? Someone 
needs to talk to some applied mathematicians about what applied 
mathematics means! (Maybe go to a SIAM meeting.) Even the section on 
Mathematica Technology has certain packages in bizarre categories.

Sorry for the rant...
