So? Will people come to it because it looks cool, or because it is a huge source of useful information? Most likely the later, the design is just icing on the cake.

Actually, I like the initial screen. It reminds me of a cupboard with a lot of drawers. What it needs is probably some kind of graphical organization, right now the boxes appear to be a bit haphazardly placed. Maybe also a color scheme consistent between the background and the boxes/menus. But the basic idea is good.
