    Hi everyone,
    have you heard of the DIASPORA? Seems a pretty cool alternative to facebook.

    it looks like four college guys work-in-progress. I'll get interested when there's something to download and some people using it.

    it's kind of polycentric in regards to different networks based on general topics. I tend to frequent FR33 Agents, which originally splintered from Beaurocrash when they were taken over by a very unlibertarian douche masquerading as some sort of political radical

    I tend to use Facebook because my family is on there, and none of them are likely to move elsewhere. Friends and colleagues there too. It's a pity in a way, as I have a few issues with Facebook.
