Yellow is the color of existing "stable" items.
Pink are missing ones.
Cyan are underused ones.
Green are unfinished/buggy ones.

Yeah, that part can also be removed because in theory one could
make a federated system that indeed encrypts everything before
it goes to the servers. In fact it's a bit odd nobody tried a
multiparty encrypted federated social network - if metadata was
none of my concern, that would be the thing to do.

Alright, I removed the whole paragraph. Now the page feels
a bit thin, so if you have criticism that specifically applies
to the federation architecture, feel free to put it in.
You have a copy of the repo, right?

Guess I would try a different T in a second go, but the
feedback I got sounded more like we'd rather keep it
nerdy style, so I don't bother. In the meantime I should
ask around bike shops if they want to have that logo...
I wasn't thinking of a saddle at all, but once somebody
tells you, there is no way to see a "T" in there again...

Still I presume it takes a professional logo to get more attention.
Taler should be in every conversation that mentions bitcoin,
but it looks like a spare time experiment when you see its
logo, website or flyer.

People filter the importance of projects that way. If whatever
you are advertising didn't motivate a visual artist to make it
look good, it doesn't have traction. Doesn't even matter if it
looks interesting or boring as long as it looks professional.
