Assuming you mean the current news section, a blog has the overwhelming advantage that it can be updated by people who aren't Bagder and Zagor. Ideally all current contributers should be able to update the news site without requiring one of the swedes. The current news system could be improved, but as long as its just a few people who can update it, I think it will not be used very effectively.

If you meant some improved news section that all of us can update, thats basically what a blog is. A way for a group of people to submit news without having direct access to the webserver.

I think we do a pretty good job with the wiki. Organizing the pages better would be nice, but I don't think its going to make a huge difference in usability.

This seems ok to me. We've basically already split the content anyway, since the dev stuff is pushed so far down the front page.
