We also need to finalize an online interaction that encourages people to
attain webids. Twitter is a major vector space for such a pattern, we
just need to iron out what the teaser would be. For instance, it could
be something that everyone would like to see, but the only they can see
it is if they have verifiable identity etc..
So rather than the typical: Come join Yet Another Social Network (YASN),
it would be closer to the Cheese Club pattern or shared Pictures
project. Another pattern, which worked, but for some reason vanished
was the GGG post by TimBL where the comments section required you to
have verifiable identity (this was before FOAF+SSL time). I think a GGG
post update or something similar would certainly act as vector for webid
