DiSo - the distributed social network
The DiSo project is a promising attempt to create a distributed social network - so is not following the "silo" approach as other social networks do. The blog of the project offers a short (4 min) introductionary video in which explains the vision and ideas behind this solution. The project will make use of open standards like OpenID, XMPP and different microformats. Code is available as open source. Really looking forward to see this stuff in action soon.
