+Why Brightway 2?
+Brightway version 1 was a set of programs written during the PhD of Chris Mutel. In the end, there wasn't that much that could be re-used from this research code, other than the name. Brightway2 is a completely new software framework designed to avoid the fate of Brightway version 1. See also the `blog post on technical motivation <http://chris.mutel.org/brightway2-technical-motivation.html>`_.

-Table of contents:
+Documentation is available on several levels. First, this general documentation gives an overview to the main ideas and structures in Brightway2. The actual code is split into several different :ref:`packages` - e.g data, calculations, analysis - and each package has documentation that gives more specific details on its functions. Finally, there are a set of ipython notebook :ref:`tutorials` and :ref:`examples` that can be read or downloaded and run, and provide more practical advice on applying Brightway2.

-    #. A location, which is used because Brightway2 will soon gain the ability to do regionalized LCA.
-The current format does not include fields for characterizing the uncertainty of the characterization factors, but the processed characterization matrices do, and it is anticipated that this functionality will be added relatively soon.
+    #. The numeric characterization factor. This can either be a number, or a uncertainty dictionary (see :ref:`uncertainty-type`).
+    #. An optional location, used for regionalized impact assessment. The global location ``GLO`` is given as a default is not location is specified.

+Tutorials and Examples
+.. _tutorials:
-Getting started
+There is a tutorial that will take you from a beginner to a Brightway2 pro in five steps. You should read this documentation, and at least be familiar with the specific package documentation, to get the most out of tutorial.
-<insert online tutorial here>
+The tutorial notebooks are most effective when downloaded and executed - that is the power of IPython notebooks! Run them, change them, and play around. Learn by making mistakes. Brightway2 allows you to pretty easily delete your data directory and start again.
-The command line interface
+    * `Tutorial 1 - Getting Started <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/url/brightwaylca.org/tutorials/Tutorial%201%20-%20Getting%20Started.ipynb>`_
+    * `Tutorial 2 - Working with Data <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/url/brightwaylca.org/tutorials/Tutorial%202%20-%20Working%20with%20data.ipynb>`_
+    * `Tutorial 3 - LCA Calculations <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/url/brightwaylca.org/tutorials/Tutorial%203%20-%20Basic%20LCA%20Calculations.ipynb>`_
+    * `Tutorial 4 - Meta-analysis <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/url/brightwaylca.org/tutorials/Tutorial%204%20-%20Meta-analysis.ipynb>`_
+    * `Tutorial 5 - Defining a New Matrix <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/url/brightwaylca.org/tutorials/Tutorial%205%20-%20Defining%20A%20New%20Matrix.ipynb>`_
-The following commands are available:
+.. _examples:
-    * ``bw2-controller.py list databases``: List all installed databases
-    * ``bw2-controller.py list methods``: List all installed methods
-    * ``bw2-controller.py details <name>``: Give details on inventory database ``<name>``. If the database name has spaces in it, it should be quoted, like this: ``"name with spaces"``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py copy <name> <newname>``: Copy inventory database ``<name>`` to new name ``<newname>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py backup <name>``: Make a backup copy of inventory database ``<name>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py validate <name>``: Validate the data in inventory database ``<name>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py versions <name>``: List the versions available of inventory database ``<name>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py revert <name> <revision>``: Revert inventory database ``<name>`` to version number ``<revision>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py remove <name>``: Deregister inventory database ``<name>``. Does not delete data, only removes it from the Brightway2 register.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py import <path> <name>``: Import a set of inventory data in the Ecospold data format from location ``<path>`` to inventory database ``<name>``.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py export <name> [--include-dependencies]``: Export inventory database ``<name>`` to a bw2package format. If ``--include-dependencies`` is part of the command, the bw2package will include the dependent databases as well.
-    * ``bw2-controller.py setup``: Do the initial setup for when Brightway2 is first installed.
-Other online examples
+While the examples are given as IPython notebooks, they might use data sources or computational resources which are not available to everyone, and therefore not all of them can be easily rerun on your local machine.
-<insert link to examples page here>
+**This section will be filled in when the example are cleaned up a bit**.
