    Diaspora

    New FB social networking alternative? Diaspora?
    A new social networking, open source initiative is underway?
    As popular as Facebook? Unlikely?

    Anyone here know anything about Diaspora?
    Involved with the open source development?
    Comments?


    http://www.joindiaspora.com/

    Description:
    "The privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all, open source social network."

    Updated post (9/27/10):
    http://www.joindiaspora.com/2010/09/...irst-week.html

    "The community’s response to our release has been amazing.
    Within the first week of releasing code to developers, Diaspora is the 10th most popular project on Github with over 2500+ watchers.
    We’ve had 412 forks of Diaspora to date, and about a half a million views of the code as well.
    Many people have gotten the alpha running on their own machines, and have provided countless bug reports and feature requests."

    ...

    "We have also gotten lots of great feedback about our contributor agreement, and are talking to many experts on the subject to make the agreement more accurately reflect our goals for Diaspora.
    We’ve outlined what we want that document to express here.

    The first week of Diaspora source code being released has been huge.
    Project releases like this just don’t happen everyday, and we are completely overwhelmed that so many people want to help make Diaspora awesome.
    We are doing our best to get as many people involved as soon as possible.
    Thank you so much for your continued support!"

    Diaspora October update - alpha by Thanksgiving

    Diaspora October update:

    http://www.joindiaspora.com/2010/10/...er-update.html

    Our basic feature set is almost done.
    Once that is stable, we’ll set up an alpha server so that anyone, not just developers, can try Diaspora and help us improve it.
    We’re shooting to do this before Thanksgiving.

      Hmm seems interesting. I especially like the open-source aspect of it, allowing for anybody to come up with a better looking interface if they so desire. Some of it appears very Facebookish as is though..

          Link

          Hello Everyone,

          Invites sent to your friends are still valid, but they will need to wait until sometime next week until they are able to accept it.

          Expect an update once we are are ready to send out more invites!

          Until then,

            Here is another social network, which per CNN:
            Facebook co-founder launches social network Jumo for social good
            "It's all geared to answer the question: What does [insert name] care about?" Hughes says.

                Diaspora 1-31-11 Update

                Diaspora 1-31-11 Update:
                Link
                Hello From 2011

                31 January 2011

                Hello everyone,

                We are still alive. It has been eight months since we began work, and we are extremely happy with our progress. Since we entered our private alpha in November:

                Diaspora became the fifth most watched project on Github
                ReadWriteWeb named Diaspora a Top Ten Startup of 2010
                Mashable called us one of the Top 10 Sites to Watch in 2011
                Black Duck Software named us Open Source Rookie of the Year

                Last year was an amazing year, one we will never forget. There is much work left to do, but we think 2011 will be the year that Diaspora changes the internet for the better. We can’t wait to see what unfolds.

                If you are waiting for an alpha invite, please bear with us. We are grateful we have our Kickstarter backers and their friends testing it out, and we are using their feedback to improve Diaspora constantly. If you are a Kickstarter backer and you haven’t received an invite, please email [email protected], and we’ll take care of it.

                Now, back to work!

                Till next time,

                Daniel, Ilya, Raphael, and Maxwell

                If you love Ruby or Javascript, Diaspora wants you! Send us a pull request and join our community. No contribution is too small!
