As usual, whenever I have something that I want to research, I go to Wikipedia!
So Wikipedia defines DIASPORA* as “Diaspora (styled DIASPORA*) is a nonprofit, user-owned, distributed social network that is based upon the free Diaspora software. As of March 2012, there were estimated to be more than 375 000 Diaspora accounts. The project was founded in 2010 by four students at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Ilya Zhitomirskiy, Dan Grippi, Max Salzberg, and Raphael Sofaer. Diaspora consists of a group of independently owned pods which interoperate to form the network.
The word Diaspora is Greek in origin and refers to a scattered or dispersed population.”
With the beginning of 2011 (January) I was granted access to DIASPORA*… Somehow it took me forever to write about it! Sorry!
