[annotator-dev] Website and Github Pages

As it stands right now in it's current state, annotatorjs.org/news/ has 
not been built and is coming up empty on the live site.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the intention here, but it's my 
understanding now that we want _news (the source) to be committed to the 
master branch, and news (the destination) to be committed to gh-pages, 
and the tricky/annoying part is that we'll have to toggle between 
branches to keep _news committed to master and news committed to gh-pages.
