I thought I was the only one doing that. :)
I'm a web developer and designer, I would be happy to participate in Daryl's project. I guess we need a place where we can all organize and talk about it more.
Regarding Daryl's skeptical designers question, I'd suggest starting a group on Atheist Nexus to bring all of the designers and potential clients together.
Michigan Skeptics will be happy to donate web space for such a design/creative resource project.

http://node.nerdist.com/ seems to be close to what Daryl G. described in his e-mail, but it is not a skeptically themed website.
Here's the short description from the site's founder, Chris Hardwick: "The Node is the official Nerdist community. It is a collaboration network for creators to nerdsource (crowdsourcing with nerds) and exchange ideas. We share photos, links, videos, and pretty much let our nerd flags fly."
@Erik and @Rob McD - I agree wholeheartedly. There is a sort of Facebook for Atheists where we could start a group for free - called Atheist Nexus (www.atheistnexus.org) - it's where all the cool kids hang out (so you've probably heard of it).
I've never thought of you as James Bond, but I think that you could pass for a James Bond Villan.
Excellent show, as usual. And I hope you don't mind, but I transcribed a part of your response from around 48 minutes into the show regarding viewing Christians as a hate group. It just rang too true for other communities, and I had to share it (and a link to the actual episode). I've posted it to my Google+ (which you don't seem to have) so, if you have an issue with it, please let me know.

I was thinking along the same lines as Erik. A website listing people with specific talents who are available to help with skeptical projects would be a great idea I think. Photographers, musicians, proofreaders, people with expertise in a specific scientific field, people who can speak a specific language... So many talents exist that could be useful to various projects.
Why limit the proposed website to designers? Why not make a clearing house for all types of talents? There are probably plenty of people willing to donate their time or knowledge to a project, be it designing or catering. I can see a kind of Monster.com/Craig's List site for the skeptic community.

This is the Daryl from the Episode. I've set up a forum at secdesign.netthralls.com for anyone who wants to talk about this idea to signup for (I've got "approve membership" turned on to try and stop spammers form joining in and ruining the forum) and start talking about this.
