Bzzz.... bzzz...... bzzz...... That's not the sound of bees. It's the buzz surrounding new, open source Twitter competitor identi.ca. Creator Evan Prodromou sat down at OSCON in front of Linux.com's video camera and explained what identi.ca is all about and why it's suddenly such a hot item that he's been meeting with multiple venture capitalists -- and can be cavalier enough about those meetings that he canceled one to work on some code bugs that were bothering him instead. Code quality might be a reason for some of the buzz, which has resulted in so many stories about identi.ca that we might as well just link to a Google list of them.
