Social networking sites don't interest me in the least and will join this one just to plug Eon8 like I did with Myspace. Anyway what are your thoughts about it? Its opening for registration this Wednesday the 15th.

It doesn't look really like Myspace and Facebook. It looks like its going to be more indepth.

LinkedIn seems more like a "professional" site. Looks like what chat roulette wanted to be, a serious site; we all know how that turned out. I think that they are not going to be as successful though.

Definitions of diaspora on the Web:

the body of Jews (or Jewish communities) outside Palestine or modern Israel

the dispersion of the Jews outside Israel; from the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in 587-86 BC when they were exiled to Babylonia up to the present time

the dispersion or spreading of something that was originally localized (as a people or language or culture)

Never mind...

"To clarify, September 15 will be our open-source developer release. At that time, we will open up our github repository, publish our roadmap, and shift our development style to be more community oriented. We intend on launching a consumer facing alpha in October. Join our mailing list to get an invite."
