Obviously, anything is better than the status quo.

Don't we love exponential growth? I got my invite from another slashdotter. Problem is, I have no matches between Facebook real names and slashdot nicks. I know he's from slashdot, but I don't know who he is here... Go figure.

With all the worries people have had over the sharing of information, I suspect that this is only the beginning.

Not only will other people set up diaspora servers, but also diaspora-compatible services. It's the beginning of the "read/write web" that we were originally promised.

This is slashdot ... I'm still waiting for the ability to add a a REAL explanation for why something was modded a certain way. And an "oops - let me update my comment to fix the stupid typo before "teh grammer speling" nazis get to it to "edjumicate me on propper sin-tax".

Well, we know nerds aren't good at UIs ;-)

So what exactly is diaspora? (1)

Arker (91948) | more than 3 years ago | (#34528544)

Something like facebook right?

Yup, about... Very alpha. Difference is, it's open source and you can have your own server.
