Are you interested by having foaf+ssl looking better?
If efforts are put into a design, will you put it in place?

+1000 but that means that we have been able to convince people with sexy web sites ;)
And without good looking materials, we're back at the start.

Good looking Web sites are not only for Mr/Ms Smith.

agreed.

Maybe you should try to propose something to Mozilla Labs and/or Drumbeat Projects

Does it have to be opensource only?

Though we do not live that much in 1984.
It is a lot more like The Brave New World.

Which is even scarier.

ps: btw, I'm always amazed (in a good way) at the will and dynamism of the Linked Data/Semantic Web community.
