About D*

To social media it seems one can apply a "citizenship" and "nation state" analogues. To receive services you must be counted in the census.

  • Facebook is a ruthless expansionist imperialist superstate that collects taxes in the form of forcing citizens/users to view non-opt-in ads which they don't.
  • Diaspora* is a loose transnational organization for intercultural exchange.

Feature request: Emigration

is clearly #1 on the wishlist. Implementation of emigration between D* pods so that datas and will help drive innovation and high quality and importantly remove a mental barrier-of-entry of the potential new D* user: "Which pod should I choose? The Free'est? The coolest domained? The one closest geographically? The one with best uptime.. I can't decide.. This is too difficult.. I'ma give up.."

Feature request: Split public into global and local audiences

To allow global aggregation of posts ( and most essential of #hashtags ) marked "global" will be available to all users in all pods whereas the "public" remains as it is


Diaspora has dual id system where one is the webfinger address and the other is a 17 hexadecimal character string so that makes an address space of 295,147,905,179,352,825,856 addresses, which is nice.
