The Diaspora project, working on privacy-aware social networking, has made its first source release. "Much of our focus this summer was centered around publishing content to groups of your friends, wherever their seed may live. It is by no means bug free or feature complete, but it an important step for putting us, the users, in control. Developers, our code is on github, our tracker is public, we have a developer mailing list, and we are happily accepting patches." (Thanks to Tom Arnold).
