Looks like Diaspora is now officially a "Community Project"!  Smiley

I do not think Diaspora is a wise use of cash.

There are far better free software projects to donate to. Diaspora raised more than 200k last year to write a simple web application, it's still not finished... and they need more?

Both http://opensource.appleseedproject.org/ and https://n-1.cc/ (elgg) are projects made on much small budgets and teams (appleseed is one guy AFAIK), and they're far better. Your money won't be efficiently used if donated to Diaspora.

I would pick some piece of free software you use often or you think Linux needs, and donate to that Smiley TBH the diaspora guys come off clueless when you watch their initial fund-raising video. The software itself is pretty bad and requires all these esoteric dependencies rather than using tried and tested libraries.

Don't throw a stone when sitting in a glass house..

Anyway, anybody using Diaspora, is it worth looking into. I am not a facebook or google+ user.

I've been on it for a while ( https://joindiaspora.com/people/4d1d1d9b2c17437fc00001ef ) but its pretty dead. There would need to be a lot of people going to it to make it worthwhile. I seem to check it about once a month when I get a notification that somebody did something.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

just make some contacts, and it's reasonably alive as an online community (your real friends are probably not there of course, so it's a different thing still to facebook). Or just follow some hashtags like #bitcoin

Also Adam Kokesh and lots of libertarians recently joined.

Problem is that checking once in a month is the same that I do but I post to facebook more than to g+ and almost did not post a thing to diaspora. Network effect.

Sure there are things that make no sense on the one or the other social network but for those things that should go to all, you should post them to all. To not have more work, there are tools (which tools?) that allow to post to them all with one action. If you want to support diaspora, use it to post, too. Hen and eggs you know.

ah yeah, there's also Friendica which can integrate some of the major networks reasonably well.

It is not uncommon for young computer nerds to commit suicide.

Personally I think healthy food, regular exercise, socializing and perhaps having a boy/girlfriend, maybe a pet could be factors that could greatly help in having less suicides. Ah, and of course, getting out and getting some actual air and sunshine on their face.

And of course, I agree with everyone else - this is a tragedy.

For those interested, here's a list of MIT undergrad suicides, not an uncommon occurence:

I agree doing those things above definitly can prevent suicide. I think being in the same environment can make you feel hopeless and depressed.
