Lovechild opines:

A mobile version of the site most definitely: not a horrid tablet app, but content that rerenders properly so that constant scrolling isn't necessary.
If LWN did have a widget with an attractive animated icon, you could ask {Jolla, Vivaldi, ZaReason, System76, Archos . . . } to pre-install it.

A better RSS feed and better search engine are also no-brainers. Improved external visibility of the content would help popularize the site.

What about a Kickstarter/IndieGoGo project to hire a developer to make some of these improvements? I'll go on record saying I'm willing to contribute. We funded the Debian sysadmin manual this way, and we can fund LWN Upgrade too!
