More on the (post-Facebook) distributed open social network front: Diaspora. "Diaspora aims to be a distributed network, where totally separate computers connect to each other directly, will let us connect without surrendering our privacy. We call these computers ‘seeds'. A seed is owned by you, hosted by you, or on a rented server. Once it has been set up, the seed will aggregate all of your information: your facebook profile, tweets, anything. We are designing an easily extendable plugin framework for Diaspora, so that whenever newfangled content gets invented, it will be automagically integrated into every seed." You want to see a pretty clear statement of need? At Kickstarter, "4772 Backers" (including me) "$174,323 pledged of $10,000 goal." Awesome.
