An overdue update from the Diaspora team

The Diaspora team has put out an update on their progress in creating a "privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all, open source social network".

We know that’s a hard UI problem and we take it seriously. The publicity and money that you have given us has let us work with great designers like Janice Frasier, through her new program LUXr, whose constant reminders that we are not the user have kept us honest and focused.
