Yes, it is difficult to explain some things other than by first building them and then demonstrating
. :-) 

I am not a html or UI expert. I can write it of course and make it look reasonably good, but
I don't know all the browser tricks,  the aesthetic details, css or javascript to make a really
good looking  interface. And of course for a developer  demo that was not the priority. 

Clerezza is really an excellent platform for building the Social Web, and this is why I wanted
to get enough working for the WebID conference in California ( #idbrowser ) and the Federated
Social Web Conference taking place in Berlin in 10 days . At the
Berlin conference there should be a lot of people who these demos could convince to join,
use and hopefully even help develop Clerezza. 

So I am really glad the video helped! I hope it can start a UI architecture discussion, so
that we can understand the functionalities needed and how to make those as attractive and
easy to use as possible. This can then guide many other decisions such as where code should
go - which for the moment I left in the Account Control Panel, for lack of a good idea of
where else to put it.  
   Perhaps we should have a meeting at some point because I have a nagging feeling that doing
UI in e-mail discussions is going to be difficult :-)

yes, I am in Fontainebleau here which is a small town in the middle of a  big forest, with
lots of trees and lots of birds twittering away, especially now that it is spring time :-)
