    Diaspora preview

    What arrests my attention...
    is the fact, that this space is inhabited.

    Re: Diaspora preview

    Alright, someone fill me in. What's the point of a social network that's meant to become fragmented? One of the cool things about Fb is finding a close friend from a decade ago that you've fallen out of touch with.... Even if you're both using Diasporia, but you're on different servers, you'll never cross paths.

    Creating Diaspora is bad idea. In my opinion.
    Facebook is the strongest social network... why would 500+ millions of people go to Diaspora now?

    Diaspora comes too late, people are less interested in that kind of social networks. Facebook even starts losing users, I don't think those users will use Diaspora instead.

    The same reason that people left Excite for Google, Friends Reunited for MySpace and MySpace for Facebook, because it is better or offers more.

    Myspace and facebook are different social platforms serving very different needs. Facebook is about people, myspace about artists and collectives. Things may have blurred recently, but I don't know a single band or artist that doesn't have a regularly maintained myspace.

    To be fair, from testing it on some site and reading about it, if I was one to feel disappointed about something, i'd feel heavily disappointed about this.

    It's very basic, it seems like not much work has been put forth to it and it doesn't really stand out in any areas. It just kinda, sucks.

    It's too plain, simplistic and dull, considering the amount of time they've worked on this and the funding they've had, it's quite terrible.

    I personally feel that within a month's work; what they've done could be accomplished by one person.

    But that's just my opinion. The idea was silly from the start, there's loads of free community projects out there already that you can implement on your own server, I don't see what's so special about this.
    It would of been better as a centralized network as apposed to one you must create yourself, there's likely to be hundreds of these sprawling across the web soon, good investment? I think not.

    In my opinion, they gave hype but failed in delivering.

    Just my opinion.

    I don't think anybody outside of the tech (or even just the open source) community will be that interested. The idea of switching 500 million people to a different social network in which you need to set up your own server doesn't sound all that possible.

    If you want stuff done right, do it yourself.
