I was just hanging around in the CCCB offices in Berlin, and Jacob Applebaum [1] just
walked in. So I used the opportunity to ask him how feasible using Tor Onion URLs
with WebID would be. His answer was that he could not see any problem with it and
that it should work. What the implications for it would be would be something to
further to be determined, but he was very interested in the possibilities of 
distributed access controlled social networks behind Tor. So its something that we 
should seriously try to get working. If we could have something working for the next Chaos 
Communication Congress [2] at Xmas, I think that we would have a material for
a presentation that would get a lot of interest, and that would help us make
some very good headway with the security and privacy experts.
