Based upon the discussion from this question, Footer area suggestions?, I would like to propose an update (feature request?).
I would have to agree that the footer could be confusing for beginner StackExchangers (StackExchangians?). I do not like the idea of shortening the technology section as proposed in the aforementioned post, but I do agree with the changed color on the license links.
I propose the following as an update to the footer, we change the color of the "cc-wiki" and "attribution required" to the same color as the "contact us" and "feedback" links as well underline when hovered over like the other links in the footer (thanks to @hammar for the catch). Also, provide column dividing lines between the sections that will be the same color as the section headers.
