Always the Last to Know: Diaspora

Diaspora is the first open source social network. Can it take on FB? It's still in beta, so it's hard to know yet, and it's important to note that there are questions about the suitability of the open source approach to a social network, however it looks promising, at least initially.

I've heard of this. Are you on it? I'd like to give it a try. I don't like all of FB's censorship and subtle psychological manipulation.

It's still in beta, so I'm not on it yet, but I am keeping an eye on it.
